Thick Brown Socks

This was my first project knitting in the round and so much fun. As it was my first non-scarf project, I learned how to pick up and decrease stitches. I followed the directions from Sock 101* and miraculously emerged with a pair of socks! They're much too thick to wear with my normal shoes but I was able to wear them the one and only time I went skiing.

*This site was great because it had detailed, step by step instructions and, more importantly, pictures. Jess and I taught ourselves to knit from various internet sites so everything we know is based on the help of books and websites. I've found that it's impossible to understand anything written without some visual clues.
