Nice sock. I love the colours. Smiley It looks like it fits you really well, too.

I've got knitting needles, and I'm not afraid to use them.

It fits really good. I usually knit my socks Toe-up, so the seam on the toe is kinda messing with me. I started the other one last night. I'm only to the end of the ribbing so i'm not sure if it's going to strip the same. I really hope it does!!!!

That's what I"m talking about!  I can't imagine how proud of yourself you must me.  You spun your own yarn, and then knit your own socks.  I love it!  I'm a knitter, soon to be spinner (as soon as my fiber gets here), and I can't wait to make posts like these!  Thanks for the inspiration.

I am very excited!!! this is the 1st thing I've ever spun and knitted and i could acually wear!!! I danced around my apartment for like 5 mins. my boyfriend and my kitty just stared at me. I'm such a dork. I wish i had more fiber but money is tight til after august. I'm going to Colorado to visit family. I wonder if Salada has a fiber shop?!?!?!??!

Those are great! I love the part about you dancing around. I imagine you were wearing the socks at the time. You should feel proud. They look well knitted. It's hard to spin such even sock yarn - they look perfect. Nice to see the results!
