socks 101

as of this very moment i am turning the heel of my first knitted sock.

i am using the pattern from socks 101 (knitty.com) to create a 'custom' sock pattern for myself. i decided to use my trekking xxl yarn before diving into my recent purchase at Stitch DC (georgetown location) of Lorna's Laces shepherd sock yarn in the Envy colorway. i am really excited to finish my first pair--it has been surprisingly painless!!!
as it is still very hot outside the day when i can wear this lovely wool/nylon socks is heavily anticipated. i think i'm a officially a sock knitter.
