FO: Turmeric Socks

Last Fall I was looking for a cool new sock pattern and someone on Twitter recommended this one, Turmeric Socks, by verybusymonkey.  I took one look at them and knew I had to knit them.  I love the way the pattern tapers into a V on the top of the foot!  So cute!  The cables pattern is very interesting and not too difficult, though I did have to use a row counter to stay on track.

If this yarn looks familiar, it's because I accidentally bought two skeins of it way back when, so I now have two pairs of socks in exactly the same color.  Whatever works!
