I am so proud of these suckers.  This is the first complete pair I have ever finished.  I made two other socks before these, but they were both failures and were not mates.  Look at the stripes, man!!  The Stripes Match!!!  Wooo Hooo!!

These are awesome!!  What pattern did you use if I might ask?  I am still looking for the perfect pattern before I try my hand at socks and I love these.  Smiley

I got the "pattern" from Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's book Knitting Rules
She has instructions for a good plain sock.  She goes step-by-step and explains everything so wonderfully.  It was great for me because I tend to get lost in regular patterns.
