So, I've been wanting to learn how to knit socks. I figured for my first pair I would use a relatively simple pattern and a heavier yarn, since I'd be learning some new concepts and techniques. I used this pattern, and Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. I think they'll make cozy slipper socks for the winter!
For my first attempt at socks, I don't think they turned out too badly ... I wasn't overly thrilled with parts of the pattern though (I wasn't crazy about the way that the heel was done, it seemed to leave small holes where the short rows were done). I'll definitely be making more socks, but next time it will be a different pattern with a finer weight yarn
