No Longer a Sock Virgin

I took on a new challenge even while taunting my dear auntie who is well practiced at making socks. I said Never never never never and even continued saying never while I was making my first pair of socks. lol funny eh? haha
So I decided I was going to make a pair of socks. And no it wasnt that hard. Of course I made the world's easiest socks, but still, one has to start somewhere. they werent hard. they were a little "boring" on the long parts but it is entertaining to see these self-patterning yarns make up a neat pattern and a little suspence "what colour is going to come out next? how exciting!" ahaha

And I finished the first sock on Saturday night; the second one Monday night and I have them wearable now! lol

I really actually wanted a dark pair but Scott talked me into these navy;light blue;grey;little bit of black ones. They are pretty but not as dark as I had wanted them ;) Guess that means I am going to have to make another pair lol!

Picked the sock yarn up at Margolians :)

Sock 1

Finished pair!
Now I know what SSK mean and I even grafted the toes :)

Ive already picked up some yarn for Scott's socks.

Holy Shit you tricky little witch!!!! Hahahahahaha You got me big time. I wondered why you asked me about ssk but bought your story hook line and sinker!!!
I am so proud of you I could bust. Now I guess I won't feel guilty about keeping the socks I casted on over the weekend for Car kniiting. Socks are the BEST car kniiting...they fit in a purse and you get lots done on a trip. I casted on Sunday and turned the heel yesterday of sock the first. Also excellent waiting for kids at swim practice knitting...standing in line knitting...riding public transit knitting....
Did I mention I am crazy proud of you?
