Socks for me!

(Grrr! I'm having to re-create this post since the one I originally wrote has vanished. No idea what happened.)

I finally finished a pair of socks for me. My first ever! My friend L (of L&H fame) gave me this Conjoined Creations Flat Feet yarn back in January or February. I've tried several times to come up with something that worked with the yarn. I finally decided to use the basic sock pattern from Folk Socks by Nancy Bush. Except I used a short row heel and a Kitchener stitch finish.

So, here they are. I really like how they feel. They're quite comfortable. I'd make myself some more socks if I didn't have such big feet. Well, my feet aren't unusually big but still those extra couple of inches are sort of discouraging.

I rushed home from the yarn shop on Saturday so I could catch the opening play of the OSU/USC game. It's a good thing I did because otherwise I'd have missed OSU's only scoring play. Still it was better than UCLA did.

I can't believe that of all the socks you've made this is the first pair that are actually for you! Well done!

And as a Trojan, it was a goooood weekend for me. :-) Not only did we beat Ohio but UCLA lost.

I think your first copy of this post didn't vanish, but warped over to the 'Knitting New Scarves' KAL.
The socks look terrific. What's it like knitting with unraveled yarn?
