Here are some details about my project:
Category Knitting

What materials did you use? Wool

What are you most proud of? I never thought I would be able to finish the second one, because the pattern was more complicated than I thought and I had to adjust the length of the toe, because I have small feet.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Well, it takes practice to turn out well fitting and flattering socks. I needed to fiddle around with gage and needle sizes. I found out that I like very tightly knitted socks, those are the most comfy for me. I don't like to feel ridges under my foot soles.

These are outstanding for a 50th pair, let alone a first pair! Hats off!
