Success! They fit!

Ah, the taste of sweet success. Or is it the sweet taste of success?

Either way, I am estatic... the socks (my first EVER) I've been working on for the past month or so were given yesterday to my dad (his birthday... happy birthday, dad!) and they fit!!! He loves them and was flattered to receive my first-ever pair of knit socks.

They were knit using Lion Brand Magic Sock yarn in Sea Blue. The fiber content is mostly wool, but with a little nylon, and they're washable. I love the way the striping turned out.

Here they are, being modeled by my dad's tootsies!

Good Job! Maybe next time I should make a pair at a time! I know your dad loved them because he knows how hard you worked on them.
