Anklet socks

These were a project to use up about half a skein of red-brown yarn that had been used in the two-color socks finished earlier this year.   The V-stitch is interesting, but fiddly enough that it required looking at for most of the rows.   No putting my hands on autopilot for this one - even more so than a two-color pattern, oddly.

It really was odd to cast on and go straight into the heel. 

The yarn (Skeinny Dipping's Mericash yarn - they're local, and Gather Here had some) has 20% cashmere in it, so it's very soft and comfy.   (As well as nylon, because socks.
