My first pair of socks

Aren't they gorgeous!? They fit DS perfect too.

I actually the second sock a little more than a week ago. I'm just so proud of myself.

Now I'm working on a 9-square blanket for my DS. I've got the first square done. It's the country cousins pattern from Lionbrand. So I still need to decide what color should go with "apple red"

And since I'm on here I thought I would post my recent projects. I made a flat panel hat for DS. It's a pretty lemon yellow. The model is Sad Sam. :-)

I made this scarf out of homespun yarn. I didn't have a particular pattern. Just wanted to practice my purling.

This was my third scarf. It was made with Paton's Yarn.

I can't remember the "type" of yarn but it was a furry type yarn. Oh it is so soft. I would love to make a bolero out of this yarn but I fear it would be expensive. :-) I do remember that the color was platinum.

I did it!

I finally finished my first sock. After having to frog it at the end of last week and being able to do a marathon knitting session this weekend I finished it this morning. I think considering it was my first sock and I don't have a lot of knitting experience I kicked butt! LOL.

The second photo is my DS wearing his sock. Not sure if he really likes it but I'm sure this winter he will! :-)
