A Year Later, Finally the Other Sock

I started the first of the pair around this time last year. I dubbed it the sock from hell because it required unbroken concentration (at least for me) in order to not screw up the pattern. But finally I am doing it's mate (pun intended) and hope to finish sometime this year!

The navy and lighter blue yarns are from my own sheep, a ewe named Bramble. I spun the wool and dyed the yarns with Gaywool commercial dyes. The white is the only yarn I have ever purchased. I was in Connecticut and I needed it because I had not finished spinning enough white. It is 50% angora 50% merino.
