Here they are, my first completed pair! I wore them to bible study this morning....the perfect day for it, chilly with the wind blowing 40 mph out of the north making it down right cold.
I learned quite a bit with this pair. I see the importance of journaling what you do so you can remember for the next sock. For me, this is especially important since there were some problems that would have been resolved if I had written it down. I learned the height I like for a sock to go up my leg...next pair will be slightly shorter. I also learned that it is not the end of the world if you must frog. I had to do it not once, but twice on the second sock. I have confidence now that I can get the tiny stitches back on the needle.
I am looking forward to starting my next pair. I am going to do a KAL with the For the Love of Socks group. They began the beginning of November, so there is no way I can keep up. But for me it is not about winning, I just want to complete the project! I am going to use a beautiful shade of Lorna's Laces called Harvest.
