Socks +2

My first pair of knitted socks is done! I'm excited and happy with the way they turned out. The yarn was easy to work with and now I have left over yarn. I think I'll make some wrist warmers with that. I'll have to take photos of my mom wearing them when I go back to IL for my visit.

I have been asked this a few times but YES, these are my first pair of knitted socks. I had help from my lovely friend Crystal. We meet in my local Stitch 'n Bitch group. Crystal had been after me for awhile to try knitting socks or even try knitting. I finally gave in a few months ago. She pretty much introduce me to DPNs and the joy of working with them. After that I was pretty much let lose and I could easy ask her if I didn't understand something.
