Green socks finished

Yarn: Knitpicks Essential in Grass (why not Grass Green? Is it just too obvious?) These socks used much less than two skeins.

Pattern: basic top down, pretty much taken from Charlene Schurch's Sensational Socks. The pattern stitch is a two-stitch cable twisted every four rows. Next time I'm going to try Sylvia's trick of staggering the twists so that half of them are twisted every two rows.

Fit: okay. I've just caught on to the fact that my high arches might best be served by a deeper heel. Next pair will have heels done on 60% of the stitches.
