My First Pair of Socks

Wheeeee!

Not bad for my 1st pair ever knitted. I will take action shots later when Pumpkin Girl wakes up. She'll be thrilled that I finally finished these. I tried to make them match up as much as possible. I learned some new techniques - mainly knitting short rows.

She loves 'em! I can't ask for more.

Those look great for your first pair! My daughter loves hand knit socks(and she has developed rather expensive tastes in them--preferring Lorna's Laces to all others). Just passing through on Stashalong patrol--have a great week!!
