That looks seriously nice, frenchnewwave... Shocked

lindsoriah - they're not much different from regular socks - just longer. Tongue

I'm just about to turn the heel, but I made them a bit shorter than the pattern calls for, because, well, the pattern looks better (in my case) if I stretch the sock a little. So I'll put some elastic at the top of the sock so that it stays up properly.. But I was going to do that anyway. Wink

I absolutely hate the yarn (cheap %&$ sock yarn), but I'm determined to finish them.. It's not that the yarn is scratchy or ugly or anything.. I just hate it! Cheesy

I've got this pattern bookmarked to knit one day... One day! Wink I really love the beaded version, too!

Yours is very pretty, and props for finishing it.. I get impatient if it takes too long, and start something else! Wink

Thanks! Smiley

I'm using 2.5 mm needles (not sure what that is in US sizes), and mine seem to be coming out fine - despite of the fact that I have sticks for legs. Wink The top lacy part is just a smidge loose, but it's nothing a little elastic won't fix!
Next time, though (and there will be a next time) I think I'm going to try out some Arwetta merino sock yarn - it seems like it knits up a bit nicer than this semi-crap yarn. Wink

What yarn are you using?

I think you did a great job with the dying! No clashing of colours, and it knit up really well. Smiley Your cousin will love them. Wink

Against my better judgment, I'm going to buy yarn for this tomorrow. I think I'll be using Garnstudio's Safran - it's 100% (Egyptian) cotton, so I was a bit worried about sag-factor, but so far I've only had good experiences with Garnstudio's yarns, so...
Besides, the gauge is almost spot-on - 23 spi/30 rpi instead of 22 spi/30 rpi as called for in the pattern, but as my bust's smaller than 33", I don't think it'll matter much. Wink

Can't wait to get started!

I just cast on for these nice knee socks yesterday, and they are so fun and easy!

I'm making mine in some cheapo white superwash 75/25 wool/nylon. I'd already tried out 3 different sock patterns before this one caught my eye. Smiley

I'm a bit farther now, have started on the leg part of the pattern, and I'm just speeding along. Smiley Can't wait till they're done! I have a nice little plaid skirt these will compliment very nicely.. Wink

So anyone else with me on these socks?

So this swap ends in May? Sad Aaw, I really wanted to join, but figured (for my own and my partner's sake) that I'd wait until after my final exams... And I graduate June 29th.
Will there be another round? Smiley
Yet another Dane here. Wink From the rhus area! I've been on Craftster for a long time, but only recently discovered the Scandinavian board. Shocked I usually just lurk around the knitting boards, so... Wink

I'd be interested in a swap, but I'll have to wait until after my exams are over. Sad Otherwise I'll get too engaged in the swap instead of studying. Wink
I'll be graduating the 29th of June, however... Roll Eyes

I usually don't KIP much, since I'm never going any place where the ride will last much longer than 15 minutes - and I'm usually tired (bus to/from school). Wink

But once when taking the bus a bit farther to a larger city, a man sat down next to me. I'm not sure if he was a bit 'slow'; he reminded me a bit of Forrest Gump in the way that he talked and moved. Smiley He was incredibly sweet, and watched me for a long time before saying "So watcha makin'?" and I replied "A sweater." - "Oh." He watched me a bit more. "So who's it for, then?" - "It's for me, finally something for me. Wink" - "Oh. *pause* It's very pretty!!"
He was just so darned sweet and interested that it completely made my day - especially the way he said "It's very pretty!" Smiley

I also knit during our written exams, and sometimes it'll freak people out - they think I'm done with the exam when in reality I've just gotten writer's block. Cheesy The guards, especially the women, also come up to me and ask what I'm making, and that it's the first time they've seen students knit during an exam. Wink I tell them it helps me think!
