My first socks

Ok, so here's a pic of my first socks. There's a lot that I don't like about them, but then again, they are my first attempt and they were done by just figuring out the pattern. So, who knows whether I actually did it right. They fit, so I guess that's the most important thing, right?

The yarn was self-patterning, so it didn't exactly line up. Still, it's a neat pattern. I also started a hat last night so I could knit something "simple" at knitting circle tonight. Yup, I ventured over to Rosie's for knitting circle and it was kind of fun. Anyway, here's a picture of the hat in progress. I'll probably finish it tomorrow night, it's that quick.

I think your socks look fab, particularly for your first pair. Also love the combining of pinkish and brownish.

These are so great! Far better than my two-sock first attempt. Maybe next time I'll go for two! I love your hat, too!
