Wedding Ring Quilt Socks

What more socks done? Well, yeah, these are for Mom and.....well....I needed the USO needles for another pair of socks, so I busted butt the finish them today. And the kids having a playdate helped!
Pattern: Wedding Ring Quilt Socks by Jeanie Townsend.
Her Yahoo Knitalong Group is Here.
This was a test knit, but the pattern should be available soon.
Yarn: KnitPicks Essential Sock yarn in Gulfstream (discontinued color)
Construction: Followed the pattern. It is lovely and fun, I especially like the Mock Cable along the sides. I started with 2 50g skeins of yarn and still had 28g left over, so I would assume one could easily do another repeat on the leg if they like a longer leg and still be fine for yarn.

Hope you like them as much as I do Mom?!?!?!?

Linda ! Can not believe that you finished those intricate socks. I would like to have them as my own,but only if you are sure you do not want them for your self.They are lovely and my favorite blue color.

Nice socks! I also like the side cabling. Those extra details make for really socks.
