First Ever Socks!

I finally finished my first ever socks.  Well, first ever adult-sized socks.  I made 4 minisocks a few years ago, but I have never made adult-sized socks or even a Christmas stocking before.  I started these socks in October 2013, and they have been sitting in my UFO (unfinished object) pile since November 2013, awaiting a new bind-off and afterthought heels.
