FO: First (Complete) Pair of Socks


Yarn: Schoppel Wolle Zauerball Crazy in "Mars Experiment"
Needle: US Size 2 (Circular)

I've only knit socks once (more correctly, I've only knit *one* sock once and gave up knitting the second). I tend to make them too big and unfortunately that happened again with this pair. I made this pair for my boyfriend for his birthday and while I succeeded in making them in his favorite colors, they grew sooooo much during blocking. While they may not be an everyday sock, he will hopefully get some use out of them when it's super cold out. 

I used to have a problem where every hat I knit also somehow came out too large. Hopefully with a bit more practice I can also get my knit socks down to size. 

The pattern itself is great. I knit the medium size, though I should have knit the small. The Zauerball Crazy line of self striping yarn can give either very symmetrical or very non-symmetrical results with socks -- I got pretty lucky this time!
