Do these stripes make my ankles look fat?

OK, so people with thick ankles should probably knit their fair isle socks side-to-side for a more slimming effect. Who cares if my ankles are, ahem, sturdy? I can hardly wait to knit the second one so I can wear these babies everywhere.

First sock!

After several false starts I went with the very simple and flexible Ann Norling sock pattern, with a traditional heel flap and gusset. It was a confidence builder and now I am mentailly prepared to tackle other types of socks. Well, once I make sock number two.

My friend Kate finished her first sock Saturday. Her ankles are better proportioned. Sigh.
