I finally finished my first pair of adult socks. Knit on size US2 dpns with Sockotta sock yarn by Plymouth.

I didn't really follow a pattern - just used Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's sock recipe from her new book Knitting Rules!.

Since I prefer ankle socks, this was a fairly quick and easy project. I'm now at work on a pair of socks for my husband, using Cascade Fixation. Emma and Kate are clamoring for more socks and I can't wait to make another pair for myself, too. I may have just become a confirmed knitted sockoholic!

The socks are lovely! It sounds as if you are definitely hooked on sock knitting! I'll expect to see some lace knit, cabled, and argyle socks soon :-)

Thanks Michi! Look out - you never know when I might send a pair your way.

Harriet - Have you finished yours yet? I'm working on that pair for Dennis and I'm sorry to say, it's incredibly BORING. Plus, I'm unsure if I've got the gauge right, so I may have to rip it out and start all over if it doesn't fit. My beautiful Lorna's Laces yarn keeps calling to me from the stash...
