Pink socks finished

Even though colloquium and CMS are on summer hiatus, I've been getting in some pretty good knitting time, and a few weeks ago I finished the pink socks. The pattern is from Cookie A's book Sock Innovation, and the yarn is from Claudia Hand Painted Yarns, purchased at Webs.
Two things I love about these socks:
  1. The color. I don't really think either of the pictures captures the beautiful pink colors of the yarn. Pink is my favorite color.
  2. The way the lace panel eats the ribs to arc across the top of the foot, as you can see in the first picture. Robert says this is "nifty," and I agree. Also, I really appreciate the symmetry of this element. The socks are mirror images of each other.
