May's Socks

Dear Mom,
Started late but finished early, these socks are ready to be washed and put in the gift drawer! I started out with these using a rather complicated stitch pattern, couldn't read the stitches in the variegated colors, lost my place in the pattern and realized that really, when it comes to socks, I just want to knit on auto pilot. Hand knit socks feel good on your feet no matter how plain or fancy. So, simple socks it is again. And again.
Love,
Kim

I love knitting socks, but like you, I like knitting on autopilot. Homemade socks rock! I love your pattern!

Kim, I am on the verge of learning to knit socks. What pattern do you use? Any advice?
