One of the more ambitious items on my most recent Hit List was to knit myself a pair of socks. The last and only thing I've ever knit was a scarf nearly a decade ago, but after being inspired by all the quilty blogs who have been posting knitwear, I decided it was high time to jump in.
Here is my very first attempt at socks. It's not much, just a fairly basic stocking stitch but I knit it in the round, and to me, that's a huge achievement.
This was definitely a great project to get me excited about knitting, and I started a second pair of socks about ten minutes after finishing up this set. The next pair is quite a bit more challenging and I'm so pleased with how they're knitting up. I'm hoping for a reveal after a couple more weeks of train commutes so I'll keep you posted.
Good thing they're so cute because they sure aren't conducive to floor based photo shoots!
