Hi, I just joined this blog, too. I recently finished knitting my very first pair of socks:The pattern is from MagKnits; here's the link. The yarn was gifted to me from a friend and I'm not sure it even exists anymore but it's called Stahl Wolle Socka Cotton. I enjoyed knitting these socks and like the finished product. I'm working on my second pair of socks and they are not going as well (you can read more about that on my blog).
Thanks for having me and Happy Knitting!
