January Socks (A long time coming...)

I took the opportunity this month to finish the second of a pair of socks I started on October 2nd.  The first sock was finished around October 15th, and then sat in my WIP drawer until January 25th, when I realized I had no socks for January.  Voila!  I love this pattern, the Dragonfly socks...NO purls in the pattern, and it's easy to memorize.
The yarn is Handmaiden Casbah in the "Paris" colorway, and it is delicious stuff!  Knitted on HH sz 1.  Love 'em!  And I love seeing everyone else's socks...happy knitting!

Happy Knitting everyone!  Staci

Edited to add a pair of reverse stripes (but matching cuffs) anklets that I was able to finish up!
