I made socks!

And here they are...

Glossing over their (many!)  imperfections I'm quite pleased as they are my first ever attempt at socks. I did cheat and use a 2 needle pattern as I still can't get my head (or hands!) around DPNs. They will certainly be good enough to wear around the house with slippers or as bed socks. They are in a 4ply cotton that I bought from the outlet store at Bendigo Woollen Mills.

Now for my next project....I wanted to try and make a cardi but I only have 15 balls of the wool I want to use and its not quite enough. So I think I might make another shrug either this one or maybe this one. Decisions, decisions............

Your socks look good Margo, maybe try knitting socks on a circular needle I find that a lot easier than dpns. If you have got 12x50g balls it should be enough for a jumper.
I like the moss stitch shrug.

Thanks Debbie - I've actually just printed off a pattern for circular needle socks and I might try those as well, but I think I'll tackle the shrug / cardigan first

I so want to have a go at socks. I usually just get Anja to make 'em for me.... You are so clever :)
