Circle Socks

On my last trip to WEBS back in December of 2011 I bought my favorite sock yarn, Socks That Rock.
There's my sweet boy modeling it for  me.  I can't believe he's been gone over a year already.  Anyway, I fell in love with this skein.  It sat in the stash until June till I decided to make "Circle Socks".  I finished the first one and kinda liked it.  I could have made it a bit smaller, but it still fit.  And then I never cast on for the second sock.  And I really just forgot about it.  You see, when I knit socks I don't like to think much.  This pattern calls for a bit of thinking (although really not much) and I didn't feel like doing it.  Last month I was going through my basket of projects and found them.  So I finished them.
I have to tell you - they have just been elevated to my favorite pair of socks.  As big as they look, they fit perfect.  And they are so comfortable!
I love the pattern and how it can be worn either low down the ankle or raised up the calf in case your legs get cold.
So I will definitely be knitting these again.  I'll use STR as well.  Hmmm.... guess I'll have to make a trip to WEBS. What a bummer.

I knit a pair of socks for my daughter using that pattern SHe loves them. I agree about not wanting to think when knitting socks. I am working on a pair with a chart. Blech.
