Jane is having her Third Annual Show Her Your Socks contest. This year she's having us show our first pair of socks and then the socks we have just recently finished or are working on right now.
I have a couple of *first* socks to show. First up are my first socks ever.
I made these for #1 Son back in Sept of 2003. I made them using left over acrylic yarns and they have no heel. I know the stripes don't match, he wanted them that way. I'm not sure what to think of these guys. I don't really consider them socks, but #1 Son still wears them occasionally, and since they are on his feet, I guess they count as socks.
My first *real* socks (ie with a heel) are these.
I made these in March of 2005 for my new nephew. These have a heel but they were made with acrylic yarn and the cuff was a bit tight.
My first pair of socks that I made for me are these.
These were made in Oct of 2005. I used some Regia wool blended yarn, but I used a size 3 dpn. They fit but not as snuggly as I'd like.
Thank goodness I've learned a thing or two about making socks!! My latest are these.
My tan ones for CIC that were eventually dyed Pumpkin.
And of course the lastest socks for #1 Son
I used the same pic from my previous post, they haven't been touched since!! Can I TELL you how small size 1s are?!!?!?
Thanks for doing this contest Jane! I always love looking at other people's socks, AND this has inspired me to put all my sock pictures in one folder so I can see what I've made and how many I have done. That would be 27. Hopefully I can break 30 by the end of the year.....
