Socks - The Newest Frontier

I got a little bogged down on the two Poetry in Stitches cardigans, and so decided to make a pair of socks for the first time. I have to admit that I wondered how hard could it be ... Well, I quickly learned that it requires some new skills and the first attempt was immediately unraveled. I then discovered Terri's Socks 101 , and voila!

It took me about 2 1/2 weeks to complete the pair (not including the first false start). It's a great feeling to create something usable in such a short time.
