Latest socks

I feel like I've been knitting these socks forever, but it isn't their fault. I've been pulled in other directions and have often knit only a few rounds before setting the sock down for days. Truthfully, I am premature in using socks (plural) in the title as only one sock is complete so far.
The pattern is Rosebud from Wendy D. Johnson's  
Toe-Up Socks for Every Body
I was concerned that the knit pattern wouldn't show up well in a yarn with flecks that can be distracting, but it is turning out well. This is one of those cases where the work doesn't photograph well, or at least not by this photographer.
The yarn is Ty Dye Socks Dots in lilac 6744 from Knit One Crochet Too
 I have nothing lilac in my wardrobe so I'm not sure why I picked this color. I don't dislike lilac, it just isn't a good color with my complexion. Shopping or another knitting or sewing project for a top might be in my future!

Excellent job on the sock(s) and the photography. I am impressed. I never got past knitting the bootie type slippers in Girl Scouts.
