Started way back in January and on the needles (on and off) for almost 6 months, I am now proud to present my first pair of knitted socks! HURRAY!!!! I haven't been defeated by double pointed needles! I feel like I have mastered new knitting skills and feel ready for another project to take me out of my confort zone.
The sense of achievement was somewhat tarnished by the photo below, when I realised that I started shaping the toe in the wrong place and that I now have these unsightly stitches on top of the socks. Doh!
Well, I guess this is a good example of learning by making mistakes. The next pair should be an improvement! I have already bought the wool ;-)
PS: If anyone is interested, here is the link to the simple pattern I used to make the socks.
