FOs are blooming

Done! My Snapdragon socks are finished, with two of a gauge that let me put them on. I suppose I could have just knit the second sock to match the first gauge and given them as a gift, but Snapdragons are my favourite flower, and, well...I'm not that giving. (and I have so few hand-knit sock worthies in my life.)

I'm not certain about the sudden and swift pooling that occurred on each sock, I would have preferred the stripeyness of the foot to have prevailed but there didn't seem to be a pattern to the yarn puddles, although it was repeated in each skein. Oh well, flowers grow like that too.

Size 2.0mm for foot, 2.25 for leg, 3.0 for bindoff
Pattern: Diagonal Lace from Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy D. Johnson
Mods: only the toe, changed it to try a variation I won't be using again.
Yarn: SweetGeorgia Superwash Sock in Snapdragon
