The Mystery that is Socks

Ok so I couldn't resist. I've been curious about sock knitting but was afraid that the instructions would be too difficult to decipher.

Yesterday I took the plunge. I purchased some DPNS and cast on on my first sock. I'm starting with something small - Pumpkin Girl's socks. I'm learning a lot of new things with this project. Fun!

Heel

and toe

Upon seeing the sock fitting, Little Man asked if I'm knitting one for him, too. Oh Joy!

UPDATE: Here's the link to the pattern.

very impressive first timer!
I really like the yarn you used.
I am so intimidated to do socks- my sister keeps telling me to get over it and I just might now that i have seen your project.
Who is pumpkin girl and where do i get her pattern!? :-)
