With many, many thanks to Jessica, I present the completed pair of New England Socks. (Appreciate these photos - I braved single digit temperatures to get pictures with real sunlight!)
The fit is wonderful and the yarn - I can't rave enough about the yarn. Cherry Tree Hill Supersock - it comes in tons of great, saturated solids that you can't find elsewhere. The twist is tight, it holds up great and it's super soft. Just raves here.
After finishing this single sock, I'm down to these two to finish.
