As promised, I have pictures of my finished socks.
The pattern was fun and easy (and free!). I made a few small mods: I cut the socks down to 60 stitches (and they are still a little loose - but that's my tension, not the pattern) and I added a picot hem instead of ribbing.
And - not only is this a project off the needles, but it's also another project out of my queue! Woohoo! Now it's onto a new sock design - details will follow!
