SCORE!!!!!!!!

A completed goal!!! I have successfully knit my first pair of wearable socks!!! woooohooooo ( toss the confetti and set off the sparklers) I'm so excited! I even did them on double pointed needles!! wow! I have another sock cast on the needles now... it's a tennis type sock and it's a thinner yarn...so we'll see how that goes!

I don't have a lot of completions this past two weeks.... been weeding the garden... the morning I planted some carrots beets and radishes...........been knitting on my sock and reading........... I did make a couple more sock sacks... 4 jumbo ones... I made a lanyard for myself from 8 paper pieced tiny blocks to hold my row counter, scissors and mini crochet hook while I knit.... and a couple of blocks for a quilt that's being donated to a wonderful lady.......

I hope now I can get back on track!!! Below is a series of pics of my socks... the feet are not mine........ my toes aren't that nice! lol

Very Coo! They'll be SO warm! & the next several pair will get easier 7 easier. This makes me want to pick up knitting socks again but I gotta get the quilts done 1st!

Congrats! what a lovely pair of socks you made there and they do get easier as Alicia mentioned. if they are too warm for you as socks with shoes just wear them as slippers. I wear most of my knitted socks that way as in florida it is too hot most of the year to wear them inside of shoes. congrats and i look forward to the second and third pairs to strike in quick succession! ~denise/deBRAT in too hot tampa bay florida
