i made SOCKS!!

This is my first pair of crochet socks. I started on them during Thanksgiving (??) and finished them today. Of course I haven't been working on them continuously since that time, but they did take several hours of work. With homework, a family, three started and unfinished quilts, and life going on...they took months to complete. I am happy that I finished them though. Once the first one was done, I really didn't want to do the other one...hehe!...but I can't just wear only one sock around! Oh, and with the last picture...it took me SIX shots to get a picture of the bottom of my own feet! It was harder than I thought it would be. =)

Very, very nice. How thick was the yarn you used! I've never crocheted a pair of socks. Good for you!

Those look so toasty and warm. And I love that you got a picture of the bottom of your feet. You must have felt like a contortionist!

I have crocheted socks before and thought they were uncomfy to walk in. maybe I need a better pattern or yarn??

Very impressive!

You may not remember me, I was one of your YW in Kodiak long, long ago. Just thought I'd pop in and say hi.

And oh my how your family has grown! :)

Cool socks! You did such a great job. Did you follow a book...or experiment on your own?
