Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug, plus remnants of Koigu KPM
Pattern: A top down 3x1 rib with short row heel and standard toe.
Brendon picked out this yarn (which looks somewhat more brown in person) at Monarch Knitting on a pre-Christmas visit. These socks proved to be an exercise in proper yardage estimation... I was not planning on contrasting colored heels and toes. That's right: I finished the first sock and got to halfway through the second foot before realizing, "I don't think 1 skein is enough!" So I got to frog up to above the heels of both and redo the heels and feet.
But sometimes a silly mistake like that turns out nice in the end, because I'm rather happy with the way they came out.
