Red Dwarf Knee Highs!

Well, they are done. And they are PRETTY! I wore them to work and then knitting last night alone with one of my FAVORITE pairs of shoes (I own 3 pairs of mary janes and they are all great for showing off hand knit socks!)!!

Cristi's pattern is amazing and I am so glad I knit these!

The Random Ribbing portion is fun!!! As is the reverse ribbing at the cuff so that when you turn them down they match up to the leg ribbing!

And the front and back are different and both equally cool!

Pattern: Red Dwarf Socks - The Knee High Version (pattern is free on Cristi's site).
Yarn: Fiesta Yarns Baby Boom in Pansies - 2 skeins - purchased at The Loopy Ewe.
Needles: US Size 3 Addi Turbos - 32" - used magic loop style.
Started: Sunday, September 16th.
Finished: Saturday, September 22nd
Mods: I only needed 46 stitches instead of 50 called for - but that is the beauty of the toe up socks.

The colorway doesn't do the pattern justice since it is a bit busy, however the way that the pattern looks in the colorway when you really look at them is BEAUTIFUL and it socks are FANTASTIC. This is probably my favorite new yarn - the Baby Boom and the Boomerang (its big sister) are totally worth anything you knit in it! I could NOT be more pleased with these!!!

Those are great!!! I haven't knitted my Fiesta yet, but I have 1 skein of Boomerang and 2 skeins of BB. I fondle them a lot.

Details on the shoes, please! I need some of those.
