My First Knitted Socks!!

At long last, I've taught myself to knit socks. Well, toe-up on two circs with a short-row heel, anyway. :p

From my description on my Ravelry post:

I used generic instructions from various sources on toe-up methods with 2 circs and essentially taught myself how to knit socks. I’d been saving this yarn for just this project, too, so I’m doubly pleased with how well they turned out.

Had to make the left sock bigger than the right (made the right first), b/c it turns out my left foot is almost 1/2 inch longer than the right, and the increases worked out just right. You can’t even see where I decreased on the ankle below the cuff, even in the closeup pic (the last pic). :D

Didn’t use the whole skein of yarn, so there might be a matching headband or some such to come later. Who knows?
