Just had to share- I knit up the first sock with my SP4 gift, and it is my favorite ever. The yarn, for inquiring minds, is Fortissima Colori, color#3005. So much warmer and more colorful than my store bought woolies, would you say?
I think it's cool how the heel and toe came out purple. I actually knit it twice. The first time I used this pattern from Lion Brand. But it was a little too big and I was running out of yarn. I'll used the pattens agin some time, but with smaller needles, and more yarn! I reknit it using a simple rib pattern- 2x2 for an inch, then 3x1 for the rest.
