And then there's this perfect, finished pair of socks that I can't imagine christening with the first wearing. Good thing they're going into the Box o Sox for a while. By the way, I've got to get that box.
Details: I don't really have much to say about this pattern, other than love, love, love. I guess I should mention that I usually cast on 56 stitches for my own socks and this calls for a few more, so I made sure to use a size 0 needle to get a sock that fits.
This is the neatest slip stitch heel I've ever done. I think that I really studied the photo while picking up my stitches for the gusset and so instead of picking them from the very edge, I went a stitch inward. It made all of the difference for a smooth transition.
This colorway, and the mini skein for the heels, came together in a Red Sock Blue Sock Yarn Sock Adventures pack, just in time for the RSBSYSummer Knit-along 2016, in case you're wanting to try them. They may still have some because the knit-along will last through August. This combo is killing me.
