Ta Da... new socks

New ankle socks!  I love 'em.  Great yarn.  Great pattern.  Super easy.

Yarn: Wolf Creek Wools Superwash Wool-Nylon
          Color: Nassau (blue)

          Swans Island Natural Colors Merino Fingering
          Color:  Garnet (not superwash)

Pattern:  from Purlbee here

The only thing that I would change on the next pair I knit (yes, the next pair.  This will probably be my go to pattern for basic ankle socks)  would be to go down a needle size.  They fit good but I really like my socks a bit tighter.

I also think this is a great pattern for beginner sock knitters.  It's short, easy, and lends itself to your own creativity.
