Knee High Socks

I finished my knee-high socks; casting off the last pair tonite. They've been washed and are psuedo-blocking (as in drying on towels because my wire-hanger ones are for short socks).

I did try working a gauge on the Serenity shawl kit that J gave to me, but the recommended needle (Size US 4) is too small, so I'm going down a needle size and re-gauging.
