First Pair of Socks

Finally, I have a pair!

Pattern: Garter Rib, Sensational Knitted Socks

Yarn: Trekking XXL, Color 109

Needles: Size 2 20 inch Addi Turbos

Started: 9/24/06

Finished: 1/30/07

So yes, I started these socks in honor of Socktoberfest, and then obviously drug them out a little longer. But, I'm completely excited that I can finally put them on as a pair. Can't wait to wear them to SNB on Saturday. Heck, I think I might even have to wear them right away tomorrow. Of course, I'm already looking through my books to see which socks to start next!

Congratulations!! Beware of the Gems for socks. I think it's 100% merino. You may want a bit of nylon for durability.
