FO: First Socks

After the knitting-tweaking-reknitting cycle that was the first (keeper) sock, the second one seemed to fly off my needles. Throughout all that knitting, though, I was skeptical about the yarn. It had a slightly twine-like roughness, but thankfully became all fuzzy soft after a good soak.
Yarn: Opal Regenwald / Rainforest (Buffalo Bill) 

I've been admiring the pair on the sock blockers for at least a week now — a bit scared to actually step on all that hard work. Maybe another week and I'll give them a test run. Ever had a knit that you were afraid to wear? I'd love to hear about it!


  1. Ding-dang, man, those are good-lookin' socks!

  2. They're beautiful--hope they keep your toes toasty!

  3. i never wear the socks i make. i just can't bring myself to do it. instead, i give them all away and let someone else watch them fall apart over time.
