Saturday Matinee Socks

I have my second finish on my Third Quarter Finish-a-Long list. I am pretty excited seeing how I only managed to finish two projects last quarter...I am well ahead of my game.
These socks were really quick to make because the leg is short. Although there is pattern to follow (instead of my normal stockinette stitch socks), it was pretty managable and easy to memorize, or at least work with once you understood what you were creating. The second sock went way faster than the first.

They have a bit of an open, lacy pattern up the front of the sock. Created top down on a circular needle, I managed to finish them without too many swear words.

The heels are a little different from the Fish Lips Kiss heel that I normally make, but fit really well.

The toe is a little open and lacy.

My only regret is that I did not make them one more repeat bigger. I could have used that extra 1/2-3/4 of an inch, but they'll be fine for wearing with my new Birkenstock clogs this fall.
