Pink Sock, Pink Sock, Everywhere a Pink Sock!

I finished up my handspun ruffled pink socks! I love the way they aren't perfect twins - sock brothers are fun too! I have 2 1/8 ounces of yarn left so I must have used just over 3 1/2 ounces to knit these. This pink should coordinate with the other GCNI/mohair that I dyed in the other colors, so I should be able to get some striped socks out of all the leftovers. Of course I'll have to get the other two rovings spun up first.

Since I had so much fun with these simple pink socks, I decided to knit some complex pink socks next:

These are Cookie A's Twisted Flower Pattern Socks being knit in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Nearly Solid in Pale Pink. I probably won't do the flower pattern on the heel flap the way she shows because I don't wear clogs and a standard Heel Stitch or Eye of Partridge heel flap will wear better in shoes. The flower design flows into the twisted stitch design so perfectly in these it's just amazing. I've only got 12 more rounds until the heel flap and I'm really having trouble putting these down!
