Behold

Behold my first pair of socks.




Yarn - Cascade 220 Superwash (from my Secret Pal 3 Marti)
Needles - Brittany Birch 4's
Pattern - I used several sources mostly from a book called spinning, by Lee Raven (because someday in the future I am going to learn to spin). The diy network had helpful heel tips. The cables were my idea.

They are not perfect and are not identical but I like them.



Big Pics.

I have already started my second set. This time trying a toe up pattern on two's.
