These socks are a first in two ways. They are my first completed pair and they're my first project on my new blog. They were a quick knit but they aren't super chunky and they're comfortable to wear.

Pattern: my own (generic toe-up comprised of my favorite methods)
Yarn: Wool Ease in gray (don't remember exact colorway)
Start: Last week in November, 2007
End: December 6th, 2007

My brother is modeling the socks for me. This light is horrible, sorry about that.

A few more pics on the blog and WIP pics if you're curious.

A change I want to make with my sock knitting is use a m1 instead of always opting for a kfb when I increase. It makes a really square toe when it isn't on.

Suggestions/comments welcome Cheesy

Mmm knitted socks keep in so much warmth and are so much fun to skate across wood floors in, lol. Very nice!
