Me-socks!


Simple Trekking Socks
Originally uploaded by gwendrr
Last night I finished the first socks I've made for myself. It's about time, really. As proud as I was of the previous two pair that I gifted, I've worried that they might not be as nice as they look because I've yet to wear a pair that I've made. My inexperience might make a less-than-I'd-hoped-for gift. But at least I think the friends I've given them to appreciate the work that I did for them more than anything else.

I think they came out great, but my next pair for me will be a little prettier. So here they are. I'm wearing them tomorrow!

Very Nice!

Isn't it fun to watch the patterning emerge? What brand of yarn and colourway did you use?

Thank you :) I love seeing which way the stripes will go next!

I used Zitron Trekking (XXL) in colorway 81.
