My First PAIR Of Socks.....FINISHED!

Well, I can now blog my final post on the first "pair" of socks. Yes, the second sock is now finished and on the foot of Ms Thang. She can sleep with two warm feet tonight. lol

The second one seemed to take me a lot longer than the first and I was so afraid the entire time that it would come out all wrong or too big or too little.....but miraculously, it's the same size! I am shocked and proud.

The photos aren't as clear as I would have liked but again, it's late and the light is crappy. I am so relieved to be finished and see that they did turn out not only the same size but wearable too.

Ms Thang was thrilled to have it done and put it on right away. These are going to be worn out real soon...I just have a feeling about that.

Teddy is still waiting on his last ear and a scarf and he's good to go. He had to chill on the desk while I got the sock finished. It was driving me insane and I can't cast on for another one until I finished the pair so it just had to be done.

Now, I'm going to fix me a nice cup of hot chocolate (courtesy of Aunt Kathy)....have the worst sore throat and need something warm and soothing. Spring....come on already....all this sickness is just ridiculous!

Looking good. My second sock only needs toe decreases and kitchener stitch, before I can wear them officially!
