Socks that don't slouch

As promised here are the former slouch socks reincarnated (or something).

I just cast on 60 stitches on size US 2 needles, knit a 2x2 ribbed cuff,

Then a round heel,

And a banded toe (I think that's what it's called. Whatever.)

There you have it. A simple sock to smooth my feelings over the slouch disaster. And I have started a new sock. It is the Opal Sock of the Month Club pattern for June. It's called Spiral Eyelet Sock. The yarn is Opal Petticoat #1296, and the sock is knit on Size US 1 needles. Here's what I have done so far:

It has a picot top band followed by 2x2 ribbing. Then you start the spiral eyelet pattern. I didn't think I was going to like this yarn when I saw it in the skein, but the colors are lovely as they knit up.
