Socks underway

Taking a break from hats, I've just started on a pair of socks. The yarn is Seacoast Handpainted in color "fire & coal." I had to go down to size 0 needles for this. It' a little thinner than regular fingering weight yarn. I'm used to knitting with size 2 needles with sock weight yarn.
