One Skein Secret Pal Gift

I finally boxed up my last package for my One Skein Secret Pal--I made her the Cabled Footies from One Skein (natch). This is the first knitted item I've ever made for a fellow Knitter so I hope she likes them! I ended up making 3 socks-no, my SP doesn't have 3 feet but the first one was so elfy looking with two big holes at the gusset that I made 2 more and ripped the first one. I cut the decrease rounds so that the toe would be more rounded.

These were made from Mission Falls 1824 yarn 100% superwash Merino wool. I hope she likes them. They're fun to make and a fast knit. After I was done, it felt funny going from size 8 DPNs back to size ones!

Wow, you've got huevos. My biggest fear is knitting socks for another person (that's not a family member and stuck pretending they like the results). I'm always afraid the socks will be slightly different sizes, or I'll knit the wrong size entirely!

I'm impressed!!!!

I bet she'll LOVE them and a beautiful choice of yarn too!
In the future try to pick up an extra stitch at the gussets on each side to avoid those nasty holes ;o)
