I present to you........(drum roll please)......my FIRST PAIR of socks!!!! Please note how I chose ON PURPOSE not to have these socks exactly match up.....it takes WORK to make this happen!!
Oh ....Alright.......I didn't even THINK about matching up the yarn till I put the darn things on last night at which point it stood out like crazy!!!
Oh well.......I had planned on these being worn around the house so I'm not going to rip them out and reknit to match!! These are made with Knit Picks yarn. 75% wool, 25% Nylon......after wearing for awhile they are sort of itchy.....I mean they ARE itchy.....not in the "where's the Calamine" capacity....but itchy enough that I notice it.....I'm hoping this will get better after I wash them? I'm Hoping? Someone please tell me this is so???!!!
Be just my luck after all the "cryin n cussin" to FINALLY make a pair of socks only to discover I can't wear the darn things!!!!
