Socks!!!!!!

I finished my very first pair of socks! I had been wanting to make some, and then someone sent me this great tutorial. I didn't have any trouble at all! Knitting on the round took some getting used to at first, but after the first little bit it was pretty easy. It's definitely rewarding having a finished pair of socks. I used "Harlequin" in the color "Polar Ice". It was really fun to work with! I can't wait to start my next pair!

Wow! Those are absolutely wonderful looking socks. I'm so happy to be the first to say so. :)

Wow! Lindy! I really admire you! You are an inspiration to me, grandma-aged that I am! I have never made socks. I bought a book, and yarn and needles, but I haven't done it! Yours are so pretty! Is that the kind of yarn that just does the color changes, or did you do all that yourself? I don't think I could do all that. But it is *beautiful*!! You should be very proud of yourself.
