A simple pair of socks

Really sometimes that is all I can handle, and this weekend was one of those weekends.  So rather than pushing myself, I just went ahead and finished these Madder Ribbed socks.

I used reynolds soft sea wool as my yarn, can’t say I’ll do that again.  I made them for my J, but realized later that this wasn’t a good choice of yarn, as he will have to remember to hand wash them.  I am fairly certain that they will get shrunk in the washer.  Which will upset him greatly.  He does think it is the most perfect color though.
