I started these guys back in December and got sidetracked when I did two Newsboys and the Skully sweater from SnB.

The pattern is the Basic Sock Pattern from Knitting for Dummies. I used Jellybeans yarn. I still have a bit left over...so I'm thinking of making baby socks for someone out of it!

Congrats on your first socks! Socks are such a fun item to knit - they are practical, yet fun at the same time. I like the blue yarn you used quite a bit.

Welcome to sock knitting world!

Great job!  I'm trying sock knitting too but I keep frogging my sock. 
Can't quite seem to get the hang of the heel flap & the picking up stitches...I always get a weird lumpy join. 

I'll keep trying...YOU WON'T DEFEAT ME SOCK!    Cheesy

Those look great for a first pair - much nicer than my first attempt did. Great job!

minniepearl, if you don't like picking up heel-flap stitches, there's a pattern in this month's issue of Magknits that uses a short-row technique for both the heel and toe. It turns out really nice socks!

You did a great job on those cool socks!  And they fit your feet perfectly!  I DO like that yarn!   Grin
