Just in Time!

This is the first sock I have done for Sockamania, and it was the middle of the month before I remembered to get the pattern. I hope it is okay to change a few things with the pattern. I didn't want the I-cord or the stripes. Instead I made a rolled hem cuff adding clear beads every 3 stitches while hemming the cuff. You can't see them in the picture. I also used a standard heel, since I didn't have time to try and figure out how to do the afterthought heel. The first sock was a little loose, but the second sock fit perfectly. It must have been the stress of trying to finish in time that made me knit tighter. :~}
