Sunday Broken Heart

I finished these socks a whole week ago, but it took me that long to weave in the ends, or rather the beginnings, at the cuff. Part of the Ravelry Socks that Rawk!! group Q2 KAL. This seems to be the only group I can consistently join for a KAL. They always pick cool patterns.
I love this pattern so much. The broken hearts are so freakin' clever. They break, right where the heel breaks away from the leg. And continue down the heel. Patterned heels appear to be the new big thing, don't you think?. Another piece of clever design is the gusset decreases on the sole. Genius! I may do this on all socks from now on.And who doesn't love a twisted cuff? I know I do.So much so, here's a fuzzy close-up. So stretchy.
When I first received this skein of yarn, I thought it was all purpley, pinks. But once I opened it out and wound it, there was plenty of teal, blue and brown in their too. Almost Noro-esque ;0)

Pattern: Breaking Hearts by Cristi Brockway aka Turtlegirl76
Needle: 2.5mm
