Well its only one of the pair so far, but finished successfully with I believe no mistakes! This is worsted weight yarn, so they are meant to be worn around the house type socks (nothing you would wear with shoes). I chose this pattern because of that, these are good socks to learn for your first pair. This sock pattern was shown on Knitty Gritty in the past. Also, there are some videos on DIY website showing some of the harder to understand techniques.
