Simple Socks (&more!)

Well, I finally finished the simple socks I was making out of Lorna's Laces in a purple varigated. I did 2 socks at once on 2 circs. I'm not sure the legs are long enough to be cuffed and still look good. As it turns out, I would have had plenty to make them longer. Live and learn I guess!

I've also managed to finish the first sock that went beyond a "simple" pattern. I followed the pattern for "Eagle's Flight" socks using Socka Fortissima and US size 2 dpns. I feel silly for not diving in and trying something "harder" earlier! I think these socks look great and I'm sure my Christmas recipient will love them!

Your purple LL socks are beautiful. What a great job. Better to play it on the safe side and have a little yarn left over than have to figure out how to finish a second sock when you are out of yarn.

The eagle flight sock is really pretty too. Don't feel silly for slicking to easier patterns. They offer mindless knitting and let the yarn speak for itself.
