socks?

I finished my first pair of socks this week. I was not totally sure about the idea of knitted socks. I am very particular about what I put on my feet. I was afraid they would be uncomfortable, fall down, etc. But I finishe dmy first pair (and after some advice from Liz), I love them! I changed the cast-off to the Sewn Bind-Off and they stay up and aren't too tight. They look super cute in my Mary Janes (albiet the shoes need some cleaning of their own). Maybe I'll knit another pair of socks, something warm and luscious for the upcoming Maine winter. Suggestions anyone?

Absinthe Socks
Yarn: ShubuiKnits Sock Yarn in Mulberry
Needles: Sz 1


Next on the docket? A blue Pioneer Top made with O-Wool in Cornflower. The yarn is super delicious and soft. I just hope I can figure out the pattern! (It's not written in the most clear fashion.)
