What more socks.....what has gotten into me????

Ok, after years of having difficulty trying to get one pair of socks done...I seem to have the need to knit more socks.  I have completed yet another pair.  This one is for my sister.  See my sister is allergic to alot of things and one thing that she is allergic to is latex.  Most commercial socks have elastic in them and alot of those are coated with latex to make them last longer.  I was looking at her poor legs last summer and noticed that she had lines from where the socks irritated her poor legs.  I thought hey I don't use elastic in my socks.  Why don't I try to make her a pair so we can see if she has the same issue with the home made socks. 

Vanessa picked out the yarn and I knitted it for her.  The yarn is another Online product Supersocke 100 Emotion II Color 50% Merino wool, 25% Viskose, 25% Polyamid Color 1218and was knitted on 3.00 mm needles.
