S & S Socks - Finished

I finished the S & S Socks tonight.  The colors didn't line up exactly but I'm satisfied that they are close enough.  The socks are, more or less, in Colorado Avalanche colors.  I've had the yarn for a while but chose to knit the socks now to honor two hockey players, former members of the Avalanche, who died in a plane crash in Russia on September 7th of this year, Karlis Skrastins (left) and Ruslan Salei (right).

Pattern: Generic, 60 stitches
Stocking stitch with short row heel
Worked top down

80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon
100 grams/420 yds

Needles: U.S.#0 / 2.0 mm

Size: Lady's medium

Note: There was plenty of yarn remaining.
