FO: Felix or Rick Socks

Pattern: Rick from Sock Innovation
Yarn: Knitpicks Essential Kettle Dyed 1.25 skeins.
Needles: US size 2.5mm
Mods: I added an extra 5 rows after the repeat at the end of the foot ended.

I really liked these socks, but my brain couldn't handle them during the bulk of the summer - but now that working constantly is over, they were perfect. I had some issues with the yarn and gauge. I had to stop after like half way through the first cuff and change up to Us 1.5 needles, and then the yarn changed color after a join in the middle of the skein. A little weird!

By the way, I do have a rough pattern sketched out for the laptop case, and hopefully I'll get into the computer soon!
