There's no place like home

This past summer, I moved. The move itself was traumatic and dreadful, so to deal with that and leaving the house I spent the last 17 years of my life in, I cast on for these babies. Rav link

I finished the first one before I moved, and thanks to Archer season 3 on netflix (go watch it, it's amazing and wrong and I love it), I zipped thru the second sock.
Yarn is Blue moon fiber arts in Rare gems. It's the first rare gems I ever bought, at stitches east back when it was in Baltimore.

The pattern is one I've used before, the baby cable rib. I love it, how it hugs the foot and isn't mind numbing ribbing, yet almost as simple. CO 58 stitches, top down, short row heel, and a basic toe. My poor knitwear closet is rather sad on socks, as I have no idea where most of my pairs are, so I feel a need to make ALL THE SOCKS. These are just wonderful and SQUISHY.
Since these are done, (GO SPRING FINISHING!) I've moved these to my wip sock bag.

There were supposed to a gift for my mother for christmas, but well, whoops. As Douglas Adams said, "I love deadlines, I love the whooshing sound they make as they past by".
