The color is more accurate on the second picture. These socks were so fun and easy! I’ve got several Christmas presents on the needles right now that take a bit of concentration, so I needed something a little more brainless. And as much as i adore complicated patterns and techniques, there is something very refreshing in a simple project. Sometimes simplest is best.
These socks have a simple ribbing for the cuff, plain ole stockinette for the main parts, and my very first attempt at a short row heel. I love short row heels!
