My own socks!

My first pair of hand knitted socks

My first pair of hand knitted socks

I am the proud owner of my first pair of my hand knitted socks, finished today.  They will be on my feet tomorrow keeping them warm and toasty. 
My second only item knitted with 5 needles -the first was a pair of fingerless mittens finished at the end of last winter!.  I did find the first round after casting on very tricky, and I took 3 attempts on each sock before I had a round with no loop at the start and end!.  Once that was over I actually enjoyed knitting them.  I have the wool for pair two; I might even become addicted to sock knitting.
