New Beginnings

What's that?

It's the beginnings of my very first sock!

I'm using the Snow Day Socks pattern (PDF download is free), and the yarn is Patons Stretch Socks, which my sister got for me for Christmas. I also found some in a lovely brown & white variegated on sale after that, but I felt these needed to be green.

So far ok. 8.25 inches of slip stitch takes a while (over 2 hours) for me, but now I'm onto the actual sock body....

Can't wait to see how they turn out! I am too scared to try socks, not good at shaping anything. Good luck.
