I just finished my very first pair of socks! Ya Baby! They came out pretty darn good if I do say so myself, seeing that it was my first time. They fit perfectly and they are so cozy. Love them! I used just your basic sock pattern- I didn't want to get too fancy or complicated my first time out of the gate.

Pattern: Classic Socks by Yankee Knitter Designs
Yarn: JaWoll Color by Lang Yarns
Needles: US 2
Mods: I shortened the ribbing at the top and shortened the leg by 2 inches for a more feminine look.

Crazy thing is, whenever someone came to visit and saw that I was knitting socks, they wanted a pair too. It must be my mad sock knitting skillz.

Now, I am totally on the sock bandwagon! I had so much fun with this pair, I ordered up some more (and better) sock yarn so that I can keep on keepin' on. My latest additions to the stash are some pretty handpainted wool from Socks That Rock:

That second one there is for my sister. A personal request.

Congrats! They look great! Shorter meant quicker, too, right?
(Can Oliver model these for a picture?)
