My socks are tangled up!

In honor of Socktoberfest, here's my first pair of socks completed!!

Pattern: Tangled Up in Blue by JudyBecker

Yarn: KnitPicks Essential Tweed in Flint

Needles: (2) US size 1 circular needles: KnitPicks Classic Circular

Notes: I am more convinced than ever that toe-up is the best way to knit socks. I love that I never have to worry about running out of yarn! The pattern was written clearly, easy to follow & produced a beautiful sock. The yarn wasn't STR, but for the price ($2.99/ball) I'm not complaining. The needles were a dream to knit with and the sharp points really help when making socks. When I put these socks on for the "photo shoot", they were so comfy I didn't want to take them off (so I didn't). Would I knit these again? Absolutely~

These turned out great, I'll have to get the pattern from you in another year if I ever get brave enough to attempt socks!
