Just call me Joan Jett

I started a pair of socks yesterday. (A big surprise, I know.) They are a heavily modified version of a pattern form the book 'Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn". I think I will name them 'Blackhearted Socks' after the color way I choose, and they will probably be finished around Valentine's Day.

Now I just need to keep weighing my little ball of pink and purple yarn so I don't make sock #1 too long, and have an anklet for sock #2....

I really like socks with colorwork cuffs and plain feet because I'm always afraid I'll run out of yarn. Good luck, I hope you have enough of everything! The socks look great.
