I felt a revision was needed in the pattern (row 5/changed to row 8) and have corrected the pattern.

These look delightful! I just might have to try them... Speaking of which, what was the yarn you used in the sample pictures? [Not the turquoise/brown, the other one.] I like the kind of gradual varigated look it has not to mention the colors. Thanks!

Katie--this is a wonderful sock yarn called JL Vinca (I am not sure which colorway I used-but they are all great. I love the stuff!)
It comes from Julia's Yarn Store in Texas. I buy mine on Ebay~
