one sock down

and one to go.

here's the first sock completed. i really like the way it turned out!

except for that little hole where i turned the heel. i sewed that up as soon as i saw it in the photo.
the knitpicks is really soft and i love the way the colors turned out. who knew koolaid could be so cool?
ok. i'm sorry thats what you get for letting me knit late at night :) here's a closeup of the stitch pattern. it's much smoother without the purl rows. definately happy with the way it turned out. can't wait to make the other!

edit:
the pattern is lacy scallop socks by sock bug with several changes:
i didn't do the decreases halfway down the leg, and i just moved stitches forward to work a short row heel (instead of heel flap) on only 33 stitches. then scooted the stitches back to the front to work the foot. for the toe i did decrease rows every other row for an inch then every row until i had the same number of stitches that i had when i stopped doing short rows on the heel.
sorry does that make sense?
i'm gonna stop now. and i'll cast on for the second sock sometime before saturday i guess. we're snowboarding this weekend and i'd like to to knit in the car. that is if i can get dave to drive ;)
or maybe since i'm so far ahead i should work on shirley's mittens? hmmm. decisions.
edit
decision made i'm gonna finish shirley's mittens before i work on the second sock. i might even finish my mom's clogs too. damn all those things that come in pairs! :)
