Seed Socks

I branched out again last week & tried some different socks.  These are Broken Seed Stitch socks.  I hadn't tried socks with 2 colours before so it was a bit of learning curve again on changing colours.  So this picture has the good sides.  On the first sock, the parts where I started a new row with the different colour was a bit dodgy while I learnt how tight to make the yarn, or not!  lol  But they were fun.  Green really isn't my colour but oh well.  It hardly used any of the green.  I think it was about 16g only so there is still enough for a pair of socks.
