No Cold Feet Here - I'm in Love

For SmallThings yarn-along today I'd like to share my socks!!!  I just finished the toe yesterday morning and couldn't be happier with the way they turned out.

This is a nice pattern called So Simple sock that I found on Ravelry.  It seemed to take forever to finish these, so I am very happy they are off the needles!  I tried to take a close up of the cable running through them but I think the picture turned out a bit fuzzy.  Alongside the cable on the leg part of the sock are ribs.  On top of the foot the pattern follows through too.  Kind of hard to tell in the photo, but they are there.

The yarn is from Knit Picks and I just love the warm autumn color!  Reading Knitting Block by Block by Nicky Epstein.  I've found a dinosaur scarf pattern that I'd like to make my youngest son for Christmas.  Have to start this soon!  Enjoy your day and head on over to see what everyone else is up to.
