So, I finally borrowed my friends camera and got some pictures. For your viewing pleasure:
First, my first pair of socks. KM was the recipient of these. These are done in Lion Brand Magic Stripes. Doesn't he have the cutest feet?
These were my learnin pair and I think I did a good job. The gusset increases were a little loose, I fixed those by using some yarn to sew in those spots. He wears them often. And he even shows people!!! Of course, after seeing these, FKM wants a pair and keeps asking when he will get his.
