Pretty Plain Socks
These are basic socks from the Yarn Harlot Basic Sock Recipe. The yarn is Regia in one of the Kaffe Fasset designer colors, really lovely. I usually make some variation on a rib for socks, but I really like these plain ones. A few more pics on my ravelry page here:http://www.ravelry.com/projects/newa...heet-for-socks

Those are really pretty! I've just started making socks and that looks like something I could do! Nice job.

That's great. Did you start with CO of 64 stitches? Because when I did that the socks ended up being WAY to big on my feet. I have to start with a CO of 52 stitches.
