Hand Knit Crew Socks: Complete

Cast On Date:  June 22, 2010
Completion Date:  August 4, 2010

Remember back in June when I wrote about facing fears and starting my first pair of hand knit socks?  Well, here they are!

Crew socks

The entire experience was much more pleasant than I had expected.  I followed a free pattern from Unicorn Books and Crafts that was extremely easy to follow.   At first I had to get used to the little needles, and thin yarn, and after three attempts to join correctly on the first sock, determination prevailed.  The yarn is so soft, and these socks are custom tailored to fit my foot exactly.  I cannot wait for cold winter floors so I have a good excuse to wear these socks!
