Socks!


I finished my first pair of socks!!! Well - they are nothing to brag about, except to myself. There are lots of mistakes in them, but they look reasonably like socks and they fit, and a non knitter would never know the difference. I used the magic loop method and Knit Picks Parade, and loved it. Had no trouble turning the heel. My biggest problem was with the toe. I followed the directions for kitchenering them together, but they don't look right. I guess I need more practice. I cast on for another pair yesterday, and I'm already down to the heel. It's a little different pattern, but I'm still using Parade, and the magic loop. Here they are!
