FO: Pair of Hearts

As promised, I have pictures of my finished socks.
 But for some reason - the hearts show up much better in person.
 I tried taking some on my feet, to see if that was the problem.. but nope....
So, anyway - these were knit in Celtic Cat in "Olive". The Celtic Cat looks so rustic with it's little tweedy nubs, but it is sooooooo soft!
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!

Congrats on the finish! I love that color. It looks like something you could wear with many different clothes.

I'm sure now, that I wont use lace for my skein of this lovely Tweed yarn. They look nice though with the picot edge.
