New socks

I started socks for the Sock-it-to-me swap. I think after these I'm going to hold off on making socks for other people for a minute. I haven't made myself a pair of socks in eons. Anyway these were inspired by a pair of socks in the Interweave Favorite Socks book. I don't actually own the book so I'm kinda wingin it. I like how they're coming out so far.
The yarn is new to me. It's Bearfoot from Mountain Colors in Rosehip. It's hand dyed wool & something blend. It's very soft & squishy but very warm. These are NOT summer socks. They're not even really summer knitting socks. No park knitting with these babies.

You and those cables ;o)
I've got that book - email me! (I can't make out which pattern it is.)
The color is gorgeous! They'll be very pretty!
Very pretty colors!
That is a beautiful colorway! You will love the Bearfoot, it is so wonderful. It's wool, mohair, and nylon and one of my favorite sock yarns.
