We have socks!

Running late for work so I'll get better pics later with the particulars, but one finish and one needing only bind-off as of midnight (even though I was tempted to knit into the Pacific time zone to get them finished).  These were both UFOs from 2011.

Sept2011 UFO
ETA: Plymouth Sockotta #5618, 6x2 rib, toe-up on 64 stitches.  
Did a twisted rib on the cuff that I won't do again :-)
These will be going to my friend Maureen.

Jan2011 UFO
ETA: Knitpicks Stroll in Terrain Twist colorway, toe-up 72 stitches; Garter Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks.  Followed these directions to switch to 1x1 rib for the cuff and it was a thing of beauty.  My "something new" this month will be an invisible bind-off or tubular bind-off on these; just need to wait to work on them in daylight to do that.  These are for me.

I love both pair of socks and the yarn colors. Nice job of matching stripes!
