Finished first socks!

My first socks, warts and all. :)



I learnt a lot knitting these, the second one is so much better knitted for a start! The toe on the first isn't the same, somehow I misread the pattern. But I am so pleased with having actually finished these. I will post a photo of them on me when the buttons are added. I will be wearing them, imperfections and all. :)

Very impressive.

I think they are brilliant for a first attempt - and its much more complicated than the basic Opal pattern I've done! The look stunning - well done!

Well done!! And congrats! They really look very good. I can tell you my first pair of socks was a disaster!!! I don´t even think I could use them ever.... ;)
Love the yarn colors!!

Fabulous socks! My first pair were a bit dubious - these are great.

I think you've done a great job and, as you said, learned alot to be applied to your next pair. I think the colourway in the wool is just stunning.....well done!

Thanks for all the lovely compliments :)

I'm knitting a mini plain pair for the 2 year old out of the leftover yarn. :)

I'm also trying to get more of this STR as it is so fantastic to knit with. It feels like cashmere, it is so soft to touch. :)
