Socks!


CIMG3811, originally uploaded by natalief.

My first socks. Not yet blocked but they fit, at least. Yes, that is my huge foot and pudgy ankle on my desk (the best light is on the desk where the two windows and two full-spectrum lamps help out).

Awesome yarn, indeed, but a very plain sock 'pattern', to be honest...

Yeah - heel-flap just seemed WRONG! I have NEVER seen socks like that in the shops... ;-p

Also, I magic-looped!

Yeah, I've always hated heel-flap type socks... Although some say they fit better. Me, I hate picking up stitches. :)

I haven't done a heel-flap in years. Go short-row! :) Nicely done, too, especially considering it's your first! My first short-row socks had huge holes in the short-row ends!

By the way, don't worry about blocking. Socks tend to block themselves in the first wearing. ;)
