four-stitch reticulated pattern

Finally! I finished a PAIR of socks! I saw these socks on the front cover of Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Church. I loved them and even went as far as to buy the same yarn and same colors as the pattern suggested. I rarely do this because I find that the yarns called for in a pattern are too expensive.

I started these socks in January and worked on them while DS2 was in wrestling practice. I finished one sock and started the cuff of the second sock. From there second sock sydrome set in and the socks sat in wait. I decided to pick this project up again and was able to crank the second sock out in a week. I wasn't as careful about making sure my floats were loose in the second sock so that one is a tad smaller. It's a bit difficult to get on my big honkin' feet but with a little struggling I can get it on.
I am very pleased with these socks and very proud of them.
Thanks for looking.
