First Socks?

Of course I have knit many other pairs of socks, but this is the first pair I have knit from yarn I have spun.

Yarn: My first big batch of handspun from the wheel (I continue to learn through experience), 2-ply
Fiber: Ebay purchase of Merino/Mohair Blend (it is okay)
Needles: Knit Picks Fixed Circular 2.0mm/US 0, 32"
Knit toe-up, Judy's Magic Cast On (a must have in your knitting skills tool chest), Short-row Heel (Priscilla Gibson-Roberts), Garter Rib (Sensational Knitted Socks)
Interesting Tidbit: These socks fit either me or my husband. It is some sort of magic trick that I cannot replicate.
