my first (real) socks!

I love socks!

Rio de la Plata Socks

Just finished this, my first pair of real socks. I'm not counting the Class Socks I made months ago. This new pair, are real because they were knit for real, not hypothetical, feet. And they were knit on size 1 needles. That's serious sock knitting.

From Sensational Knitted Socks, the Elongated Corded Rib socks. A 4 stitch pattern. Took me less then 2 weeks to make the pair, which is pretty quick for me. I used Rio de la Plata sock yarn, a merino/nylon blend. It went really well, and I'm looking forward to knitting 4 more pairs. I'm giving all my family socks for Christmas, assuming I can get them done in the next 2 weeks. Wish me luck!
