Simply Last Minute

I'm sure I won't be the last, but close... These were my 1st toe-up socks, and I knit Magic Loop, so this pattern really challenged me. I had needles flying everywhere! LOL. At one point I had 3 circs and 2 dpns going. But I made it through to the end. Woohoo! (Just don't look too closely, I still have a bit to learn. )

I made a couple of modifications: (1) I reduced to 60 stitches rather than 64 around, since I have a narrow foot; and (2) I did 2 repeats on the leg, not because I was running out of time (which of course I was), but because I was running out of yarn. I used Knit Picks Risata.

Pic... (Don't they look nice against my paste-y white skin?)

I really love the design, especially the cuff.
