fo: modified rainy day socks
i see a couple more people have been working on these also, so hopefully everyone is not bored of seeing these! i realllllllllly enjoyed working on these because i love socks and looooooove not boring socks. these had just enough pattern to keep me interested but it was easy to memorize. i am calling these "modified" because i chose not to do the picot-edge but rather to just do a simple 2x1 rib. i used debbie bliss baby cashmerino in poppy.....i love this yarn. so soft and squishy. thanks for looking!

I love them! I've been wanting to make those socks, but have been intimidated by the picot edge. They look beautiful with the ribbing, too. Gorgeous color -- don't ya love cashmerino?
