FO Friday: I have a pair of socks!!!


I totally finished my socks! I would write something more eloquent but....wooooo!!! I finished my socks!!! I actually finished something that is not only knitted on DPN's but there are 2 of the same thing. That is amazing for me. because I hate DPN's and I hate making anything twice. 

Wanna see? 

SOCKS!!!!

SOCKS!!!!

As I'm sure you can tell, I am VERY happy with them. I might have a go at toe-up next!

These were made as part of the Visions of Sugar Plums knit-a-long.

  8. Yay for socks! Love the blue. If you're not one for DPNs or making them twice, you can always try two at a time on one big circular needle. :)

    1. It's taken me years to pluck up the courage but they're not that bad really. I think DPN's look scarier than they really are.

  13. Hey! Very impressive, one for each foot too. Just love the colour. Great job! Toe-ups are easy with the right pattern. After that you will have to try 2 at a time!

  17. I love your socks and I am green with envy!!! I want so badly to knit socks but the most I can knit is a basic dishcloth. I am a crocheter at heart. But there is just something about the knitted sock...I love the way it looks. Keep at the good work.

    1. Despite the amount of knitting I've done recently, I'm a crocheter at heart too. I find crochet so much easier than knitting, but I've been in the mood for a challenge recently. Thanks for your lovely comment :)
