Can I Get a Hand?

Ta Daaaa!
They're finished! I wore them tonight and they're nice and warm. You may notice that the one on the left seems a little smaller than the one on the right. If so, mighty observant of you. I think I was concentrating so hard on reversing the pattern that I knit a wee bit tighter on that one. But they work and they look pretty good, if I do say so myself.

But . . . if I were going to make them again, I would start them from the outside of the skein, which had the colors I liked the most. I would also start a new skein for the second one, so the colors matched a little better.

Here's a closeup so you can get a better view of the leaf pattern (you can see it better when you click to enlarge):

And now, I have a little confession to make. When it comes to yarn I have no self-control. Here's the evidence:
In my defense, it was on sale and I've been wanting to play with it for a long time. It looks mostly black and white, but there's some blue in there, too. It's the kind that makes the fair-isle effect and there's enough to make a sweater.

What's with the two red ones in the middle? Why socks, my dear!

It's the 6-Fadig, which is slightly bigger than the sock yarn. I could use some thicker socks with my winter boots so that's what the red is for.
