First Socks

First Socks

I just love these socks. I used Koigu. I love this yarn. To me, it's not as soft as Lorna's Laces, but I love the colors and striping.

They're not perfect, of course, as this was my first time out of the gate with socks. I found that I made an error on the first sock. I didn't turn the heel. At all. I followed the directions from the heel flap and skipped right to the gusset, totally missing the whole turning of the heel thing. Oooops.

Oh well, the first sock fits okay. The second sock fits great. I can't wait to cast on for the next pair. But first, I have two sweaters in the basket that need finished.
