One TOFUtises sock finished!

I finished the first sock! This is color 723, Put Your Foot Down. I chose it when the first round of colors came into my LYS because it had the most different colors. I loved all of the TOFUtsies colors! Now there are 15 new summer colors available!

I used size 1 needles and 72 sitches. There is a waffle rib stitch on the cuff and down the top of the foot. I think it is interesting how the dark colors and light colors separated into 2 groups to make dark and light swirls around most of the sock. On the toe you can see that there were actually 4 main colors.

And as I have said before they feel wonderfully soft! I am anxious to wear them....better get started on the second one!
