A sock and a half

Rick socks from Cookie A's "Sock Innovation". Not too much left to do - don't you just love the way the left and right feet mirror each other? The yarn is Natural Dye Studio; it's so soft and should keep toes toasty. It's a bit splitty so needs some concentration, but worth the effort.
This is the first pattern I've tried from this book, which takes sock knitting to a whole new level. The instructions and charts are clear and easy to follow, and Cookie gives loads of info on successful sock design. I've made a couple of minor modifications - including a shaped arch which I find gives a really snug fit, and the usual star toe I favour over a grafted toe due to my ridiculously pointed feet!
