Self Indulgence-Socks

I finally got my 2nd pair of socks done! They were done with Sockotta yarn on size 2 needles, on two circulars. Except for the 1/2 inch ribbing at the cuff, the sock was done completely in the knit stitch. This yarn did all the designing.

I'm real pleased with the results & I look forward to making another pair with this yarn! As a matter of fact, my cousin saw me knitting these & she has put in her request for a pair.

One of the hardest things for me to get used to is that homemade socks are so much bigger that store bought socks! But...they fit & they sure are comfortable!

P.S. Yes, I've already cast on for another pair, but w/different yarn.

They look very nice, Deb. Anxious to see what yarn you are using next. I've used Sockatta several times and was happy with it.
