ok. so you only get to see one. the other foot is kinda broken...

But I :heart: love :heart: my socks! I can't wait until I can manage to put both on...

The pattern (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTmonkey.html) is from knitty.com

The yarn is jitterbug (http://www.colinette.com/sess/utn;jsessionid=1545e63d5093461/shopdata/0020_yarns/0007_wools/0005_jitterbug/product_details.shopscript?article=0110_Jitterbug% 2B-%2BToscana%2B%3D28JIT%2B-%2B55%3D29) in the toscana colorway.

Oh yeah. The two little bundles are all the yarn I had left. I was afraid the socks would have blue toes...

edit to add a picture of the heels. I'm really proud of how well they turned out. They are sherman short row heels.

Very nice socks!!
The yarn looks great, but is a bit too pricy for me and probably won't streach to my huge size 9 uk feet :oops:
I love the pattern, this is one i have yet to try. Well done on the short-rows :notworthy: , must attempt them at some point.
