FO: LifeGuard Class Socks for Dad!

Pattern: Toe Up with a Difference (Ravelry link)
Yarn: Risata from Knitpicks, Grass, all but a very small amount, maybe 40 yards.
Needles: Addi turbos, US size, 1.5.
Mods: I did a 3x1 rib on the top of foot, leg and then a purl ridge before the 2x2 rib cuff.

I started these during my life guarding class, and I finished them today, sunburnt and tired after the three previous days of lifeguarding. I'm really just sunburnt from yesterday, after having good days the two days before with no burning, just a slight flip-flop shaped foot tan, I got ignorant with my sunscreen. And when you're the palest lifeguard, that really isn't a good idea.
