Knitted socks

My foot makes a better display model. :)  To answer  a few questions.  The socks are made with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn.  The colour is Iris Garden.  I knit them on size 2 dp needles (I use all 5 needles).  I made them a woman's small (shoe size 5-7).  It took me about 5 days to make these, working on them for several hours every afternoon and evening.  I knit both socks at the same time; first the cuff of one sock, then the cuff and leg of the second, then I go back to the first sock and knit the leg and heel then switch back to the second sock.  I continue in this way because when done I have 2 finished socks and both are the same size.  I have about an hour's work left on this pair before they are done!  I've never used this yarn before but already like it.
