I *heart* socks
Socks rule. Yesterday I finally got around to making Little Man some socks. I wanted to make some out of the handspun angora that I got from Nundle Woolen Mills so his feet wouldn't freeze off at night (we've had a few coldies here lately).
So armed with my pattern, and my first attempt at using DPNS (I tell you, whoever thought up those little babies must have been smoking crack at the time) I set off in a Sock Making Frenzy. Now this was the first completed sock I had made, since the other socks I have been working on (the lovely Go With the Flow socks from Summer IK) were bring done on scrap yarn to see if I could actually do it and I ran out of scrap yarn when I got to the heel shaping, which was a bit pointless. But I digress.
So knitting, knitting, calling out to DH to come and get Little Man before I poke him in the eye with the DPNs as he tries to climb on me, knitting... you get the picture.
And voila! Here is the finished product. They are not quite right, but for a first attempt I am totally chuffed. After the first one was done I kept running over to DH to show him with a big beaming smile on my face. He thinks I'm totally looney, but was very proud!
