New Year, New Finished Object

I started these socks right before Christmas. Well, you know how that goes - add hosting Christmas, while still unpacking from moving and well these socks took a month and 2 days to finish.

 Pattern: Plain Vanilla with Fish Kiss Heels
Yarn: Kollage Yarn Luscious
Yardage: 1 skein (used 2 and have abut 1/2 of each left)
Needles: US 1.5mm

I really liked this yarn. Since this is my first project using it, I'm curious as to how they will feel on my feet.

This was also my first project using both my Sock Rulers. You can find them here. I've been using one for months now, but for Christmas received another so now no more counting. I knit to the inch mark that works for me and VOILA!

Being that it is the start of a new year I want to think about the new technique I want to learn this year. I was thinking steeking, but not ready for THAT! It might be color work on a pair of socks. I would like to knit a pair that has different color toes, heels and tops.
