A Pair of My Own!

This morning I finally finished the second sock of my Inside Out Socks so I am happy to say I now have my own pair of hand knit socks! The sock on the right is what it looks like turned "inside out" and the one on the left is the "outside" as I was knitting it. The socks can be worn either way but I think I like the "inside" version on the left because it shows the cabling much better. I was really concerned that I would run out of yarn but thankfully I didn't but you can see how little was left over.

I loved knitting this pattern as it really challenged my skills and I learned two knew techniques, knitting from the toe up and cabling. I will definitely use this pattern again but not for a while!
I'm off to NH for Celebration of Needlework tomorrow and I hope to have lots of pictures to show when I get back!

Those are definately "my" colors, Patti! Love 'em.

Did Sara contact you to mention that she's joined one of the sock/knitting groups that you've been mentioning? She loves it. :)
