        They look really nice, I think adding the blue is a good choice πŸ™‚

      I've finished two through the heels but I will be redoing the one with the striped cuff. That one was too tight. I also felt like it was too stiff and dense so I went up a half needle size on the second one.

          By the way, the color is off in this photo. It's yellow, brown and faded orange, NOT pink at all. Hopefully I'll get a better shot when they are complete.

        Finished Fall socks. I have found that I actually love the plain stripes on the sole so much that I immediately cast on again to do a plain old striped pair.

          These are great! Is it self striping yarn or did you do stripes with different balls of yarn?

          knitter131 Thank you. It's three separate balls.

        Entry for fall colors. I started to go for deeper colors like plum and darker orange etc but then I looked around me. I live in the woods and my fall is mostly browns, yellows and faded orange. And a lot of green, to be honest. We have a lot of evergreens plus our grass is still alive and well. But the oak leaves go yellow and then a kind of burnt orange. So I felt like these colors fit.

          I finished another pair of socks. Very basic toe up vanilla kind of sock so I won't claim original pattern. And somehow without the brown these colors say summer sherbet more than fall. Lol But anyway, it's another finished pair!
