Seed Stitch Socks

I finished another pair of socks. These have been on the needles since late February. I finished the first sock really fast and then got half way through the second sock when I noticed I had been knitting the pattern on the sole of the foot. I had to rip it out and start again. I also was working on another pair of socks at the same time, so that's why this finish is so long in coming. They are another finish on my second quarter Finish-A-Long list.

I am happy with the way they turned out and the fit is perfect. I picked this yarn because it reminded me of the colors in denim fabrics.

Martha wanted to be in the photo, too.

As per my usual habit, I used the Fish Lips Kiss Heel pattern to get a nice fit through the heels.
I think these socks will be well worn this fall when the temperatures get a bit cooler.
