Whew! My first pair of socks! Ok. They're short ones but still socks! I am so proud of myself! These are cotton w/ elastic. The Loopy had this yarn on Last call , so I snatched it up! Very nice to work with. I believe it is either either Crystal Palace or Cascade or Kollage. I will have to double check. I am so glad I finished in enough time for the 2nd challenge!!!
