Here's a pic of my first pair of socks I ever knit. Dd#3 was the lucky recipient...she loves purple! It was just going to be a guage swatch but then realized they'd be the right size for dd#3 so continued on to the heel, foot and toe. She wore them a few times with a rolling cuff. She didn't like that so I picked up around the cuff and added a 1x1 rib. Actually I bought 0000 needles and slid them through the cuff stitches then undid the cuff a bit then started the ribbing on #1's. Prior to this sock I had only done dishclothes and a ton of scarfs.
These were done in Spring 2005. Generic pattern here from HJS Studio. Cascade Sassy Stripes Sock Yarn. Co 60 st. on #1 dpn.
