I was inspired by this book by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee to try my hand at knitting a pair of socks.
I decided they would make a great gift for my Mom cause she'd appreciate the work I put into them, so off I went to Arthur Bales and found the most gorgeous soft cashmere wool. I didn't want anything itchy on my Mom's feet!
Then I found this beautiful pattern on Ravelry called Francie which called for knitting with 4/5 needles...eek!!!
But all's well that ends well, they didn't turn out perfect but I was happy with my first attempt at socks, and Mom seemed pretty happy when she opened her pressie while we were on holiday :D
