Beautiful yarn begets beautiful socks

Do you remember the scrumptious yarn that Lori (aka Crazyknits) sent me? In a Random Act of Kindness package that was soooo fabulous .....



Well, I finally stopped snogging it and plucked up the courage to actually wind the skein into a "ball" .... I first had to have help from the knittyboard friends as to how to do that .... being the virgin that I am!!

Then, after ploughing through heaps of sock patterns, finally found one that was worthy of my precious yarn.


I am so proud and excited at how they turned out - my first REAL pair of socks - I am in love with them ...... which brings it's own problem ...... >

There are no pictures of the socks on my feet - no way am I WALKING on them!!
Just as soon as I figure out how to fit them in, I am so FRAMING them!!!

they're gorgeous! what a wonderful job for your first ever socks! i'd never guess you hadn't made them before.

actually putting them on and walking on them is the hardest part, that's why i make socks for other people instead of myself. ;-)

Socks, glorious socks! You know, I sort of have the same problem: I'm very, very careful with socks I knit or socks other people knit for me. I never want to wear them for too long because they're so pretty and I don't want them to wear out. On the other hand...

They're socks. Let's get over sock wearing out phobia and wear them!
