A couple of days ago I finished knitting my first pair of socks!

My feet stay cold and I hate having to wear my "everyday" socks around the house when I don't plan to go anywhere so I figured making some "house" socks would be the way to go. They're made out of Red Heart yarn (don't hate!) and were a fairly quick project for me. I wanted to work them from the toe up so I used a toe cast on and then a short-row heel pattern/formulation to help me with those parts.

On the first sock I tried to do a yellow/red checkerboard pattern higher up towards the cuff but I wasn't enjoying it so I went with stripes on the second sock. I'm aiming on making my next pair a lot longer (because long socks rock!).
