First Knits

My first knitted item that was both started and finished in 2008 is ready!

Pattern: Chevron Socks from Sensational Knitted Socks, by Charlene Schurch

Yarn: Regia Design Line (Kaffe Fassett line)

Needles: US 1

Notes: Quick and easy pattern. My only change was to use the short row heel from Charmed Knits instead of the Forethought heel from Sensational Knitted Socks. I'm still undecided on the yarn. I like Regia, but the colorway will take some getting used to. The two socks were very nearly identical. The small amount of brown at the toe of one isn't really noticeable when they are on my feet. Not that I'm obsessed or anything.
