Sockamania May Socks Finished

I managed to get these finished earlier today. I've really enjoyed knitting them and will definitely be knitting another pair in this pattern.
Also, concentrating on knitting has helped take my mind off my throbbing wisdom teeth today. If my hospital appointment to have them removed doesn't come through soon, I might let hubby loose with the pliers ;0)
Pattern - Sockamania May Day socks by Anni (see Sockamania KAL on the right-hand side bar - more lovely patterns are available to purchase from Anni's blog - Confessions of a Yarn Addict - also on the right-hand side bar)
Yarn - 100g (300m) of Fyberspates 100% Bluefaced Sock Yarn
Needles - 2 x 2.75 mm Inox Grey circs
I modified Anni's pattern slightly to knit toe up and finished off with a garter stitch rib because I felt it flowed better from the point I finished in the pattern. If I'd finished on a stocking stitch bit, I would've done a 2x2 rib because that would probably have looked better but I finished on a purl bit, so garter stitch seemed the best choice.

Those socks are gorgeous and so is your scarf. I love the colours for both.
Hope you get rid of your wisdom teeth soon. Pain in that area is so debilitating. I'm very impressed that you can knit such lovely socks under such circumstances!

Did you reverse the chart when you worked from the toe up or did you start the pattern at round 1?
Thanks for the help. I am planning on casting on my first sock tonight.

Yosemite - I didn't reverse the chart, I just started the pattern at round 1.

your socks look gorgeous, the best so far :)

I love your socks Linda, they're such a vibrant colour and suit the yarn so well. I like the little blue scarf too - what a great idea.
