i have (drumroll please!) completed my first socks...a little late (2 days) for socktoberfest but at least i gave it a shot, right? a really simple 2x2 ribbed pattern...and i definitely need to get better at grafting...the toes look not so good to me...but hey, i learned how they go together and i'm excited to try another pair in a nicer yarn. this is something from Hobby Lobby that looked cool in the skein, then when i knitted it up, the variegated colors turned into blobs of pink and gray and strips of blue and red...grrrr...oh well, they're soft and comfy and WARM (very important today). and if anyone knows how to take pictures of your own feet so that your legs don't look like sausages, let me know!!!
