Fraternal Twins




I finally did it!!!! I have a PAIR of socks! My FIRST pair of socks!

Unlike what some people around here think, I actually DO other things that knit. (rolling eyes....are you STILL working on that sock?) Errr!

I decided to try making the toe on sock #2 (bottom) more rounded than pointed. I figured who would see it inside my shoe. Also I ended up picking up WAY more stitches in sock #2 than the first one...I'm not sure why that happened. I needed to or I would have had holes. But they both fit and feel just right. It was a good time to experiment. But in reality, for ME, it didn't matter. I have a long second toe so ALL my socks look pointy when I wear them. But I'll know when I make socks for the boys that I DO prefer the more rounded look. I am VERY happy with my Kitchener stitch this time too!

It will be 80 degrees here in Georgia tomorrow. But guess what I'll be wearing!
