Garter Rib Sock #1

My first post here, and first sock pattern from this great book....I feel so honored to join in the SKS pool of lovely socks.
I chose the Garter Rib socks pattern - this is the first of many pairs to be sure.

I'm only finished with Sock 1 so far, but #2 is not far behind. I modified the pattern only a little by continuing the garter rib pattern down the top of the foot past the toe decreases. The yarn is Sangria; a merino superwash that was hand-dyed by my good friend over at Cherry Blossom Fibers. I used the 2 circulars method with Knit Picks size 1 (2.5mm) needles. (LOVE these).

This was quite the relaxing knit, but I'm sure you sock veterans know that already :)

What a yummy color. Reminds me of raspberries and cream, and the subtle rib really suits it.
