Here are my new socks

New socks

Started this last Thursday and I'm already this far. Can you tell I like these a lot better? I'm keeping the pattern simple with just a 4x2 rib and using Cat Bordhi's Foxglove master pattern for the gusset increases. It's not so much a pattern as a guideline to where you can place the increases. In this case, you can put them anywhere. I've decided to put them just before the sole stitches and am incorporating the rib pattern. I've never liked how gussets end up just being a (small) sea of stockinette, so this is a nice solution. It's also a good test for another pair of socks (that just so happen to be in the same yarn, but different color) I plan to rework using Cat's construction techniques.
