They look this dark because it's a cloudy day and I took the picture in the kitchen, with a mix of LED and camera flash.
I have a lot more iknitting to do this year. I need at least six more pairs of the shorty socks, six pairs of regular socks (to replace worn out ones) and should do a couple of pairs for friends. In theory, I can do two shorty pairs a month or one regular pair a month (that, and do the other stuff I have to do, like finishing this book and starting another plus other contracted work) but we'll see.
EDITED to add picture of finished Ruby River socks
