Finished Object: Toe-Up, After Thought Heel Socks
Oh, hey there socks.
Pattern: Toe Up, After Thought Heel Sock (PDF file) by Liz Lafferty (Rav link)
Yarn: 0.94 skeins Encore Colorspun Worsted in colorway 7304, approximately 188 yards
Needles: Clover bamboo US size 5 DPNs
Timeline: 4.13.10 - 9.15.10
Modifications: I knit the cuffs in a 1x1 rib. I used the bulls-eye heel.
Opinion: FINALLY. I have made my first pair of socks. I was just lazy and didn't weave in the ends on the second sock until today. Just in time too, since it's getting cold out and I need some socks to bum around the house in! The legs are a little loose, and next time I'll knit more of a cuff. Also, I knit the bulls-eye heel a bit too pointy.
Random thoughts: It really is hard to take pictures of your own feet.
