olympic sockey

Another pair of socks for the boy, this time made as part of the ravelympics. Finished them up while watching the Canadian women's hockey team win gold last night!

Yarn is the left overs from the first pair, about .9 of a skein of Jawoll Silk.
Pattern is Rudy Got Sole.
Needles: Size 1 (US)
Mods: Only cast on 70 sts, rather than 80, and basically forgot to look at the pattern again after that. Did a heel flap, decreased to 65 stitches on the gusset... but they fit him perfectly, which is what I was going for!

EDITED TO MENTION: Those are the boys feet, he was super great about being a foot model and even attempted some pictures on his own. He didn't really understand it, but he was a great sport (get it? Olympics?) about it anyway.
