Maggie's Spiced Days

So this is not only the second pair of lace socks but this is also the second orange-y pair. I am almost positive that Maggie won't like all of this orange much, but we'll see. I do think that this pair is technically more rust-colored. It has a lot of other beautiful fall colors, as well. If you've never tried Emily Parson's Sophie's Toes, it has to be one of my favorite sock yarns. It feels a-maz-ing!


Pattern: New Year's Day by Dipsey Doodle (yes, back to back)
Yarn: Sophie's Toes by Emily Parson in Pumpkin Spice colorway (yummy!)
Needles: One Addi Turbo US2 42" circular (my first time using a circular for socks)
Mods: Toe-up (my first pair of finished toe-up socks!); short-row toe and heel; I alternated the directions of the cables for each sock
