The gods were observing me carefully

This could only mean one thing: I've started the second Pretty Comfy Sock! The Second Sock Syndrome gods were watching me very carefully, probably winking to each other and having good belly laughs, but I had no excuse: I finished the first at the very beginning of my Sunday Stitch 'n Bitch, so I grafted the toe, wove in the ends, and had to start the second.

I'm very happy with how the first turned out:

I like how it fits my little feet (tee hee), and I like the short-row heel, and I like the stretchy cotton yarn. I'm excited to finish the second one!

Yeah ... this pattern is incredibly pretty and comfortable ... the name says it all! Though the instructions for the short row heels are a bit confusing and I had to rip at the first try, overall it's easy to follow.
The red colour is good ... I may consider increasing my sock yarn stash! ;)

That looks like one comfortable sock! Now, hopefully, you'll have two cmfortable socks, soon!

those *do* look comfy. great work. You'll be done with the 2nd in no time.

Good looking sock! Now that it's summer, I'm getting out the cotton sock yarns too, but I forgot I have a ton of elann.com's Fixation clone. I like this yarn because it works up fast on 3's instead of my usual 0's. I see I'll be making some of these pretty soon! (Although my son probably won't want the lace...you know how the other boys in gym class can be!)

very nice! I have come across this pattern as well, they are next on my list.
