Top and bottom of socks

I finally decided to get over my fear of DPN's (double pointed needles) and one Saturday sat in front of Youtube until I could figure out what the heck to do with all those needles. After practicing for a bit, I decided to make SOCKS! My sister has cold feet and I had this wool so I made Spiral Tube Socks (a Ravelry pattern) and had a lot of fun doing it! One sock is slightly shorter than the other because...well because I am impatient and wanted them done...NOW!!! Sis has yet to wear them but I have threatened her to never wash them in the machine lest they felt!
