My First Socks

These are the first socks i've made!!!! It was very fun. Quick to knit too. I made this pair for Kiimberly. They just fit her. not much room for growth!!
I used Patons Patonyle, a self patterning yarn. 4ply wool/nylon mix. And a set of 4 2.25mm double pointed needles. The first time i have knitted something in the round. I loved not having to sew anything!
I used kitchener stitch to finish off the toe- had to look on you tube for a tutorial on how to do this!!
All in all very happy with them - i'll be making some more.
Oh and Kimberly LOOOOOOVES them!!!
