They were a lot of fun to knit, especially since I haven't knitted socks for a very long time.
They're reversible too.
I made a couple of changes to the original pattern. Instead of casting on 54 sts., I CO 60 sts, because I was afraid that 54 sts. would be too tight and make it too difficult to get the socks off and on. I made the right decision of CO 60 sts.
The other change that I made, I used the "Eye of Partridge" stitch for the heel flap instead of the stockinette stitch as in the pattern, because I like it a lot for socks.
Pattern inside out.
I used size 2 knitting needle with a 40-in. cable and knitted using the magic loop method. The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Solids (25019 Blue Topaz). It's a very nice sock yarn.
Now back to my other UFO's.
