Big People Socks

I did it! I finished my first pair of big people socks. I made baby socks to learn the process. Then I made worsted weight house socks to improve the process and make an adult sized sock with thicker yarn that wouldn't take five years to knit. Now, I've completed my first pair of adult sized socks made with sock yarn. Yay me!


Here they are . . .



The second sock went much faster than the first. Thankfully I did not experience Second Sock Syndrome. I just kept plugging away. I get a lot more knitting done when I stay off the computer, lol!

Time to move on to something quick and easy. But that can wait until tomorrow. Enough knitting for today. I also bought some fabric today to make something.



I'm going to make my daughter a purse, and I'm winging it. No pattern. We just drew it up and I did the measurements and hopefully it will turn out and she will love it!
