Ta-Da!!

Here they are, my very first socks ever (after 40+ years of knitting). I just followed the pattern on the back of the yarn label. The next pair is already on the needles, this time I am not using a pattern I am just following the general instructions for knitting socks in an old knitting book of mine.

I am impressed......I have never been able to catch on to four needle knitting.

Well done! I knit socks using two circular needles. I don't seem to accidentally pull a needle out now. *smile*

Great job! I love self striping yarn! I've been knitting socks for a long time and I use 4 double points (dpn's) but I really like using the 2 circulars the best, much easier for me.
If you're following 'general' instructions then you are definitely a Sock Knitter! Congrats!!!!
