Toasty Warm Winter Socks

For Catherine:
These whipped up real quickly. I love the striping. It is a lovely yarn.
Pattern: Toe Up Socks by Iris Schreier (received pattern upon yarn purchase)
Yarn: Artyarns Handpaint Stripes
100% Luxury Merino Wool (wonderfully soft)
Needles: 40" circular US 5 Harmony wood needles.
Construction: Worked toe up, one sock at a time.
Ribbing is k2xp1 (36st around)
First sock toe was started with 8 stitches around, I round this too pointy and used 12 stitches on the second sock. Much better.
