Here they are--my first pair of socks. And believe it or not, they came out identical enough that I can't tell the difference when I'm wearing them. That had been my greatest fear: that they'd be a little dissimilar-feeling and that the difference would constantly, unceasingly freak out the super-perfectionist part of my mind.
But no. In fact, they're really comfortable, and I love them.
Now, onward to a few gorgeous little balls of grey wool that will become a pair of socks for the s.o.!
