My First Socks!

 I finally finished my first pair of socks. It took me a long time to finish them, but to be fair, I would knit on them and then set them aside while I did many other projects. Once I finished the first one I flew through the second and finished it in less than a week.
I am really quite pleased with them.
 The pattern is Basic Ribbed Socks by Kate Atherley and is a free pattern on Ravelry. The leg of the sock in knit in a knit 3, purl 1 rib. It is a great first-time sock knitter pattern and I highly recommend it. The directions are very well written and very easy for me, as a first-timer, to do.  
The yarn I used was a gift from the lovely Twikka that she sent to me in the Summertime Swap last year. The yarn is Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball in the color jade. I love the yarn and it comes in some fantastic colorways.

Overall, it was a great experience for a first time sock knitter!
