The most comfy socks

Here they are! Are they not cute??
Yarn: Lion Magic Stripes, color Purple Pattern
Needles: Addi Turbo's us 2 (oh boy! nice and slippery!)
Pattern: Crazy Toes & Heels Socks by Mary Ann Bettie
Her book lets you do any yarn, any guage to make any size sock.

Addi Turob's are slippery, but in a good way.
Next time, just start the 2x2 rib right away after the heel is done, the Stockinette section makes them a little slouchy. Also, use 10-15% of ball of foot not 20%
Not only are these my first socks, they were done at the SAME TIME on 2 circulars, toe up ! Which means no SSS (second sock syndrome) and they match (I don't mind the stripes are off, I could only concentrate on so many things at a time).
The book is really neat but can be VERY frustrating. She just puts so much information in there and its not set out in a way that makes complete sense. But if you just follow along, you WILL get a pair of socks that FIT.
Next I have to try a slip stitch heel then a short row heel. And then I'll do some different patterns.........
