My first pair of knit socks
Earlier this summer I finished my first pair of knit socks. Woohoo! It was the first time I had used yarn or needles that small, so it definitely felt frustrating when after a few nights of working I only had half of a cuff....of one sock. But I plowed through and rocked my socks. I used a yarn I grabbed from Black Sheep in Needham and I really like them. I'm pretty excited for cooler days to come along so I can wear them more often. I like that the stripes don't line up to match, it gives them more personality and a handmade touch. Not surprisingly, they match my pots, as I've mentioned before my clothes often do. It's not hard to tell my favorite colors.
