Casting on for FNSI

More socks - I did finish the stripey pair with just a scrap of yarn leftover.
The vintage pattern and yarn, this gorgeous burgundy Patonyle 3 ply knits up so soft.
For the blue socks I am using another of the patterns from the book 'Knitting socks from around the World', this time the Lithuanian colorwork socks designed by Donna Druchunas. I cast on the largest size and knit this bit last night. They are too big at this gauge and I don't believe I have enough of that darker blue, so I am starting over - going down one size and swapping to the navy yarn at the front of the picture.
I'll be around later to see what lovelies everyone else was working on last night.
Thanks to Wendy for hosting.
May your weekend be filled with happy creations.

mistea, I've had an inkling to have a go at knitting/crochet a pair of socks, but I think I need a super easy pattern to begin with. Have I asked you this before??? What would you suggest??
