I finally got it right

It took a few tries to get the pattern right, but here they are. Colinette Jitterbug socks in the Jay colorway, one skein, five size 2 / 2.75mm Knit Picks double point needles.

The color distribution is pretty wild. I really do like it and I'm glad I went with a plain ribbing rather than a lace design. Here are a couple of detail pictures.

I cast on 64 stitches and worked a 1 1/2 inch p2, k2 ribbing cuff. For the leg, I worked a 5 1/2 inch rib as followes--with 16 sts on each needle, p1, k2, p2, k4, p2, k4, p1. (Note: I did shift one stitch to the needle on the right all the way around to make the different rib patterns match up, sort of.) I made a slip stitch heel over 32 sts for 32 rows. The foot is plain stockenette. I'm very happy and hubby likes them too.

Got it very right! They are totally awesome (and you only had a little bit of yarn left, lol).
