I finished my first real pair of socks a number of weeks ago. The heel is pretty saggy, but still, they're more or less sock shaped.
And then last night I finished my second pair of socks, in fun pink and green. I think by the second one I'd finally figured out what the hell I'm doing. The super-cool green and purple witch sock was made for me last year by my sister. It's for contrast. I like the crocheted socks just fine, but I must reluctantly admit that knitted is better when it comes to socks.
However, I can finish a crocheted sock in a week. I'm not sure I would EVER finish a knitted one, so I'll be continuing to make the slightly inferior crocheted version.
