I made these as a (late) birthday gift for one of my co-workers.  She just turned 20, and I thought it would be something fun for her to have a pair of fishnets that she could wear and still be warm in!  So I went to the store and bought 2 skeins of a wool/bamboo blend and used this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/julys-sock---pink-and-green-foo-foo as a starting point.

The end result?  My first pair of socks EVER

I think they turned out really nice.  The detailing on the top is a simple picot, but it makes it look really chic, I think.  It was the fussiest part of the whole thing.

The first heels I ever turned.  It was easier than I expected, but the second one was harder than the first, strangely.

She was super happy with how they turned out, and so was I!  It was a win-win crafting project!

They look amazing. The little picot lace really sets them off.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
