These were the first pair of socks I ever made. I recently ordered a pair of sock blockers from the US so I thought I would take a new photo of them while they were drying. The big lesson with making socks is to use a VERY SUPER STRETCHY bind off. And also start increasing your sitches as you hit the bottom of your scarf. I was just so focused on using every last scrap of this yarn doing a toe up sock that I didn't think of anything else. I'm probably going to have to undo the bind off and re-do it.
