Yey I'm so happy! I've just successfully finished my first pair of knitted socks, and what's more they were so easy. The pattern is one of Kelly's from Creating a family home.
The only thing I might have done 'wrong' is the gusset; on all my 'bought' socks the stitches of the gusset run at a different angle to the one's on these, but they fit just the same so I guess it's just a 'detail'.
My toe grafting needs a little work but as Rémi now wants a pair i'll have two more to practice on.
