The back is just as adorable as the front (the back is being modeled here by myhand). Once the cross in the back is made, a great ribbing is begun...it's two stitches ktb and one purl.
The safety pin is holding four stitches, which will turn into two i-cords about 4 inches long which will be tied in a little bow in the back. That might just be a bit too twee for me, except for the girly pinkyness of these socks.
I'll finish the first one today! That's how I roll on Labor Day!
