Pattern: Aran Braid Socks

Pattern mods: Added some braid repeats to the leg, worked on 2 circs instead of DPNs, picked up gusset stitches using Grumperina's pretty way, and did a star toe from the Sensational Knitted Socks book.
I just ordered some Artyarns Supermerino from Sarah's Yarns for a pair of Thuja socks for my boyfriend's fabulous brother. I cannot wait for it to arrive. I've never knitted socks for a man before (much less one with big ass feet), so I figured I should probably choose a pattern with thicker yarn and less stitches so I don't want to slit my wrists before they're done.
