Finally done...

I've been knitting these lovely socks from handspun yarn for several months. I have found out precisely why one should knit two socks right after each other. I knitted just the same number of stitches, etc. but i was knitting more tightly on the second and in particular the sock is slightly smaller around. But they look fine on!
The darker yarn is handspun 80% wool, 20% silk, the lighter yarn is 100% tussah silk naturally dyed with black lilies. I'm really thrilled with how they fit and they feel AWESOME.

So...I need to wait on the Egyptian socks because i need to dye the yarn with natural indigo first! So... i can't decide what to cast on. Any thoughts?
