Blue Socks Finished!
It has been so hard to focus on these socks. I've been itching to cast-on for my new shawl, but since these are a gift I knew I needed to finish the socks first.

I love the pattern on these socks and all I had to do was knit a vanilla sock. (I really love that the colors make twisted stripes so I didn't have to worry too much about my strips matching.)
