Socks! Lots of Socks!

My obsessionw ith rapid production short-row, toe-up sock continues. These are made out of worsted wool on size 3 needles. Using 44 sticthes they will be a womans large or men's medium. Being a large footed gal myself, I especially like the proportions of this pair. The yarn is KnitPicks Bare Worsted that I dyed with Wilton's Gel Food Coloring. I meant for the yarn to be black and blue, but the dye split and created this really pretty mix of all kinds of blues, purples and pinks.
