I haven't posted anything for a while. My camara is not working right. I will try to post a picture anyway. These socks are the basket check socks from 'the little box of socks'. The picture I took did not show the pretty pattern in these. I used Pagewood Farm hand dyed yukon sock yarn, crayon color.
I have these posted on Ravelry also. Different and better pictures to see :)

Very pretty Indygirl; a nice, soothing colorway. Did you expand in the calf area of the sock or was the pattern elastic enough.

Hi Mystery_Gyrl, Thanks & I did use a # 5 needle on the cuff. I decreased 12 stitches and went down to a #4 needle at the foot. I have a very skinny foot. I guess I should have added that in my post.
