Yep my socks are done and I think they are gorgeous. In fact I'm wearing them at the moment and they are very comfortable. This is a great pattern thanks to T. I knitted this in Patonyle which is a lovely soft yarn and complements the pattern.
Having completed the socks I needed a new project to balance my lace projects. I hauled out some Bendigo Woollen Mills Alpaca out of my stash and went looking for a pattern. I really wanted to knit this. But after spending an entire evening knitting swatches to get gauge (and I really hate swatching) I had to concede defeat - it just wasn't going to happen for me. So the next morning I hopped onto Ravelry and went hunting and I found this. I got gauge! So I cast on and I'm off knitting endless rounds of 2x2 rib.
