desert garden socks

My first pair of socks for the summer, and the second pair I've ever made. I have used the Heirloom self striping yarn and their 'ladies short sock' pattern. I'm a bit disappointed as they are a little too small and the yarn is a bit scratchy. But I love the colours and they turned out well knitting-wise. I am looking forward to testing out my skills on some more luxurious sock yarn and some of the inspiring patterns other SSS knitters have been showing.

PS: Looking forward to receiving my sock newbie prize thanks Bells and Rose Red, will post pictures of my excitement on the ruth spoon.

I love the colours! They look very summery and fresh! The yarn will hopefully soften up a bit as you wear them.
