Hedera socks finished

I bought Cookie A.'s book Knit. Sock. Love. at Sock Summit 2011 in Portland, Oregon last July. My goal for this year is to knit each of the 19 sock patterns in the book. I finished the Monkey socks last month, and last evening I finished Hedera (pattern originally published in Knitty in 2006 and available online here http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATThedera.html .
I knit Hedera from a lovely yarn that I bought at Sock Summit called Skinny Bugga (all the yarns in this line are named for insects, my colour way is called Golden Orb Weaver) from a company called The Sanguine Gryphon, which has now divided into two separate companies.

This is the photo from the book. Can you see my socks at the top of the picture? The book was on my lap.
