Sock Evolution

Sock Evolution

Next one to the right is the second sock I ever made. It's grossly too big giving it a sort of 80's slouch sock over your stirup leggings quality. And the self patterning sock yarn is...um...ick. Also destined for sock solitude.

And then Ladies and Gentleman, a successful completed PAIR of socks. Huzzah! They are Hill Country Yarns Sweet Feet Sock Yarn on US 2 needles and hoo boy are they lovely.

Congrats on the socky success! They look great. How do they feel?

My first pair of socks had a weird pointy toe too. As for the slouchy socks... the 80's are back, maybe you're just subconciously in tune with the trend? I kind of miss my enormous socks and 8 pairs of Keds.
