SOCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They are finally finished!

My first ever socks that have been neglected for other craft and knitting projects are finally finished!

I am so stoked that i chose to be brave and try an interesting pattern off the bat (despite advice from many to chose a plain pattern ;)

I learnt alot of new knitting skills including magic loop, short rows, M1, kitchener stitch and new lace techniques so i am feeling alot more confident to attempt some more technical projects!

I LOVE the Vintage Purls yarn i used and can see myself buying ALOT more of it in the future hehe

Right so enough chitchat, i sure you all want to see photos!!!!!!!
