Finished Serenity Socks - Yay!

I finished my Serenity socks Monday. I have them on my feet as I type. I'm very happy with them considering I knitted them mostly without a pattern in front of me.

I used Deb Barnhill's Back to Basics toes from and Cat Bordhi's Sweet Tomato Heel that debuted at the Sock Summit.
The heel is great, but next time I use it I want to do the reinforcement stitch - the sl1, k1 to make the heel wear better.

Addendum: December 1, 2011
I'm enjoying the socks. They are wearing nicely, fit Great, and wash well. I haven't dried them in the dryer. I just can't do it yet.
I have some commercially knit Opal yarn socks that I put in the dryer, but I can't do my handknit socks yet. Maybe when they're almost worn out. :0)

15 Working Days till retirement, but who's counting?!
