So, finally. I'm so excited. Remember the first time YOU knit a pair of socks?
They are not perfect, but close. It's a pattern from Knitty. They are 75% cotton, 25% wool. A very nice, cruelty-free wool.

I'm giving them to DH. Soft, handknit, socks!

Knitted on 4 dpns. I used metal needles, I think they were a US2 size.

Nice heel, pattern on the leg. I'd do this pattern again, but in a finer gauge next time. These are nice and snuggly. Might be "thick-ish" for wearing with shoes. Would be nice with tennis shoes or boots though!
