Two pairs of Garter Rib socks

These are the very first socks I've ever made, done in May & June 2006.

The pattern is Garter Rib Socks from Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks.

The yarn is Regia Crazy Colours six ply. The red & blue socks are in colourway Nordic, and the green ones in colourway Jungle.

To my mind, there is too much mint green & apple green in the latter for it to merit the name 'Jungle'. But never mind. My son, the wearer, likes them so that's what matters.

It was a bit odd knitting socks in 6-ply, they came out very chunky. Four ply seems a lot more sock-like. Anyway, here are the pics.

Welcome all.

Yes, it is true, Beelzebub knits. You may laugh. But wait until you check out some of my knitted creations. This is the place where I'll post photos, by way of keeping a diary.
