I made my first socks!!

First Socks! Far-Away Baby Socks A4A

The pattern is Amber Wards' "Ribbed Far-Away Baby Socks," and I made them for the Afghans for Afghans spring campaign. The yarn is a wool/bamboo blend

I tried a couple of other patterns, but this one looked more satisfactorily sock-y to me. I've read that turning your first heel is a magic moment. I don't know that I felt the magic--but there's been a lot of first sock dancing going on.

Audrey has been in bed since President's Day with a very bad cold. At least 3 of her friends have been out of school, too.
