Finally embarked on making things for my feet... first with a pair of awesome but simple slippers, and then my first pair of socks Smiley

That sock pattern is one of my all time favorites!

Great job--I love that you used a different color for the toes...

I know! I have some socks I crocheted for myself and every time I put them on I think "Oh wow, it's like these were custom made just for me" and then I remember that yes, yes they were.

lol--you are so funny!

Handmade socks take quite a bit of time and effort, so they truly are a labor of love...I knew you would become addicted, Mandy...Grin...I swore I would never make socks...now I have a bin of sock yarn and three sets of sock needles...ahhhh...c an't wait to see more socks!

The whole time I was knitting them, it was hitting me... While I love knitting hats, how many can I actually use.. But socks (and I love fun colorful socks) you can always use Wink

The toe and heel color is thanks to the lady that dyes the yarn, with this color she made little mini skeins to match the main color for them Smiley

We have a person here that puts together sock kits with mini skeins for the heel and toe...Mandy--I thought the same thing this year...I love making hats, but I can only wear so many myself...socks you can wear daily and people love them as gifts!
