GUYS! I’ve done it! I’ve successfully completed my first actual pair of socks. I’m so proud of myself!! They actually came out pretty decently, too, which is also a plus. One more item off the massive WIP list from months and months ago…
They are on my feet right now! And without further adu, here are a few pictures.
The heels on my socks are, in a word, awful, but I’m not surprised. I kept confusing myself with the short row and losing track of where I was, and I probably did the increase differently every row heh. Next time I’ll get it better. The socks are also a bit snug, but not too bad.
I learned a lot making these socks, and I’m really excited for the next pair!

They look awesome, especially for a first pair of socks! I love that color work stitch. And the heel looks fine to me! : )

Great socks. Snug is good cos it means they don’t slide around in your shoes.

I hatehatehate short row heels, so if yours are bothering you, check out this toe-up heel flap. I usually swap in this heel when I am doing toe-up socks.

Thanks so much for sharing that! The other heel-flap directions I was looking at were much more math-heavy than I care for my knitting to be. I’ll have to try this out on my next pair of toe-up socks :)
