Socks are finished!

I finished my second pair of socks using the Queen Kahuna Crazy Toes & Heels book. This pair I made a little smaller and they fit even better than the first ones. Store bought socks have never fit my feet. Usually the heels end up above my ankle. LOL! Even though I learned to knit socks several years ago, it's only since I got this book that I've been able to customize socks to fit my foot. My goal is to fill my sock drawer with handknit socks. That could take awhile if I only knit one pair a month. That's doable though as I don't want to give up knitting other things. I've got quite a stash of sock yarn to choose from as I've been collecting it for several years. I'll probably cast on another pair soon.

I can only hope that my first pair look as nice as yours!
