New socks

Here is a picture of the socks that I'm working on. Well, this is one half of that pair, the first and finished sock! Sock two is about half done. Looking forward to finishing them and getting them on my feet!

Beautifully knit, and the colors are very appropriate to the season here in Maine!

Thanks guys....the only thing I would do different is make the leg a little longer. Since I wasn't sure how much yarn I was actually working with, I decided to make the leg of each sock a little shorter than usual. However, I may even decide to pick up stitches along the top cuff and knit up a little? Not sure, but I think that's do-able...

Just remember that if you pick up and knit the opposite direction your stitches will all be off by 1/2 stitch and could possibly affect your ribbing. you can also snip just below your ribbed cuff and pick up all those live stitches and knit up that way...
