Now I know - shooting your own socks in public is a difficult and embarrassing task, leaving you with standard issue pictures of propped crossed legs in hand knitted socks. Next time I'm using a tripod ... or a husband :)
Pattern: p/hop Socks: Quick and Easy Ribbed DK Socks
Yarn: Ram Rainbow 60 g
DPNs: 3.25 mm
The pattern for these socks is free download from Ravelry, very well written and easy to follow. However, I did knit my socks more than once - because it happened that the size of my legs fell in between the extra small and small sizes - 40 stitches was a bit tight, 45 stitches looser than comfortable. So, having finished the first sock in size small, I rethought the situation and decided to knit the socks with 42 stitches as was the right number for my size and to change the rib to 5 knit and 1 purl. Which meant that I had to knit the first sock once again. But these are short DK socks, so it didn't matter that much. And anyway I knit for fun and quality, not quantity :)
BTW, the color of the socks in the pictures is TOTALLY wrong, I just can't make the camera shoot reds. And that particular combination of dark red, scarlet, purple and orange seams to be far beyond my camera's abilities (or my camerawoman skills :).
