4th pair. The colors are somewhere between the two pics. The second pic is pretty close to accurate, just not quite so dark. The first one taken in direct sun is a bit TOO bright, but you get the general idea.
After this pair is done, I think I'm going to work on some knee highs for my daughter who asked me today, "Why are you making so many socks for yourself?" lol
Of course I don't have to justify knitting for me, but I told her I'd make her some school socks next. I have some way too bright for me sock yarn that she loves (it's the French Cajun in her)
The only challenge is finding the right gauge. I may do some cable thing or other, or maybe a clock up the side - who knows? It's just a pity that they have to wear solid socks to school when I have SO many little balls of yarn in different colors. They'd be the perfect size to make her socks to match mine in all these different colorways.
