First pair of socks!

I’ve recently discovered sock knitting, and I love it. The first pair of socks I knit were for my dad: he always asks for socks for Christmas and for his birthday, so I figured I’d knit him a pair. I ended up giving them to him after a last-ditch knitting marathon to finish the second one and he really liked them. This is one of the two: I had to beg him to take off one shoe so I could get a shot, and he wasn’t about to take off both shoes. I figure it’s a good sign.

I knit them toe-up on five size 2 DPNs with short-row heels and the yarn self-striped.

About Alisa

I'm a graduate student studying medieval European history. I knit, spin, quilt, and occasionally sew other things. I learned to knit and sew from my grandmother as a child: spinning I picked up on my own thanks to stubbornness and the internet. I have two spinning wheels and one sewing machine, and more knitting needles than I probably really need. My yarn and fiber stash is large enough that I think I'm probably well supplied for the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse.
