The hard to capture colorway that has....

become my Cotty Socks ! I'm still shooting with 2 camera's. I need to get used to the wee one!
awww do I have to model pic

Heel Pic!
Heel pic! I like the patterning down the side. While knitting the heel flap I found out why I've been having troubles when I knit the 2nd stitch on the purl row. (you know the first one is slipped) it's all in where you have your working yarn, in the front or back.

Sock 1 went quite fast....Sock 2, made me say a few bad words!!! The pattern repeat was super easy for me to memorize, (I'm so bad at this...need my cheat sheets a lot) so by Sock 2, one would think it would go fast...um...not... darned YO's! Heh, and I think I want to knit more lacey things!
Rear pic
Rear view--I just love how a few different stitches, arranged in a certain order, make this patterning. I just want to say "how do they do that". I could so never be a pattern writer...no patience whatsoever!

Hawt dog! The fastest I've ever knit a pair...err...I think...(yes I know it's sportweight!) and I've even been knitting on my February Lady and Tomatillo as well.

Thank you Carrie for an easy to knit pattern, just what I needed! :)

Very nice! I like the details on the heel and at the cuff.

I vote that the color looks more magenta than purple - at least on my screen.

These are awesome Zonda! I have the Cotty pattern too. You just inspired me to knit the top half of my cat bordhi socks in this pattern. I started a pair at sock camp and had been struggling with a pattern to use for the leg portion. This is it!

I love that color! And i love the way Cotty keeps the high-wear areas plain. Good idea!
