My first pair - ever!

I've finished Baby's socks.... I knocked out the last one tonight while Hubby and I were watching The Italian Job (I love that movie!). See?
The second one turned out better than the first one. The pattern is actually a variation on one that looked too girly to me, so when it said "turn the heel according to xxxx pattern", and "complete the toe as written in xxxx pattern", it actually did not leave me at the right place either time, stitch-wise. Did that make sense? So I did what I thought needed to be done. And on the first sock.... look:
I didn't pay close attention to where I started knitting the side cables. It's not bad, but look at the second sock:
The cable continues down the side from one of the top cables. I think I'm only a stitch or two off on the socks from making them identical - and it's so hard to see the cables with the variegated yarn anyway - so I'm happy.

Sorry for the fuzzy photos! On to knitting sweaters!

Ah, don't be so hard on yourself. They are adorable.

I agree -- they are adorable. Whatever mistake is there is only noticeable to she who knit them! Congratulations!

P.S. I like Italian Job, too! (Gotta love the mini-Cooper!)
