Sock It To Me…

Yes, I’ve finished my first ever pair of socks!

I’m delighted with the result.  And now I know how much more comfortable they are than bought socks, I’m going to be making more!  In fact, I’ve already started making a pair for Jenny – Lion Brand’s Classic Cable Socks.  A bigger challenge, using DPNs and a cable needle… but so far, so good.  I’m making them in Cygnet Yarns DK Shade 150, Heather, on 2.75mm DPNs (the smallest I’ve used so far).

Here’s a WIP photo of the Classic Cable Socks:

  1. Beautiful! I remember the first time I put on a pair of hand-knit socks and realized how good they felt – it’s one of the loveliest feelings around, isn’t it? Looking forward to the next pair!

    • Thanks 🙂 It’s wonderful! As I suffer with painful feet, it’s really special to actually have comfortable socks 😉 The new pair might take a while, being more complicated 😉
