I finally finished my very first pair of Abbie-sized socks! =)
Pattern: Random internet pattern for ribbed socks
Yarn: Swizzle Self-Striping Sock Yarn
Check 'em out!
What I learned from my first pair of adult socks...
*Use a pattern from a source you know and trust. This pattern was okay...didn't like the heel or toe directions...and then halfway through the first sock, I couldn't find it online anymore, and I'd lost my print out (oops!)
*Use bigger needles next time/make a swatch--these fit because they're stretchy BUT I'd like to make my next pair a little bigger
*Extra toe room is better than not enough
*Self-striping yarn is way fun and awesome!
My next project is finishing my dad's scarf (soon!) and then I'm thinking about some wristwarmers from knitty.com.
