Everglades Socks

I finished these socks Friday night but the weather has been so miserable this weekend that I didn't have a chance to get outside to get some pictures. 

Of course, as I was preparing to take these pictures, it started sprinkling again. 

Although I wouldn't pick this color again, I think they turned out ok. I'm hoping to send them to my mom this week so she might have a chance to wear them before it turns summer in Fresno. I just checked the weather there and it's already about to hit 80 so I'd better hurry. 

The yarn I used for these seems like it is going to make a very sturdy pair of socks. I'm hoping I won't have to worry about replacing/fixing these for some time.

And they even turned out all nice and matchy-matchy, just like I like!
