First Pair of Socks Completed!
Woohoo! My first pair of knit socks are complete! I used a "Spiral Sock" pattern with Patons Kroy sock wool. These socks are super warm and I just love them! I'm not sure if this is kinda weird, but I don't know if I could wear them just as regular socks inside my shoes! I feel almost as though they're a little too nice to wear inside shoes or something. I'm not sure if anyone else has felt this way after knitting socks?
Truth be told, I've been purchasing my socks for the past while at the local Dollarama store. They're cheap and alright as far as socks go, but they're definitely nothing like a warm pair of hand-knit ones!
After making these, I went back out to the store and bought some more sock yarn. Perhaps I'm already addicted! Maybe I should get used to wearing handmade socks and use my old ones solely for the purpose of going to the gym with my sweaty old running shoes. Thoughts?
