Got mine finished this evening.  I knew that the yellow would be tight but in the end the last round and a half of the last yellow stripe is a different yarn; slightly paler and a bit thicker but it hardly notices.

I could have done with a couple of stripes less as they aren't stretched at all on my feet, so hopefully they willshrink a tiny bit in the wash.  Like all socks they will get tossed into the washing machine, though they have just had their first (and only) handwash.  I love putting a newly finished piece of knitting into warm water and feeling the stitches relax and even out their tension.

Thanks @Celia I just made a stupid error after shaping the heel. I picked up the side stitches and knit across the stitch holder stitches, but somehow managed to drop three stitches from the stitch holder and messed up trying to correct this.

I might try again soon, but don’t tell anyone

I'm making a kind of Frankenstein's monster pair of sock - cuff from a book, body from the internet, heel from a YouTube video. 

This one

On the last lap with these, just a few more inches to knit>  :thumbsup:

I really like this pattern, and I'm sure it will be better next time I make it.  I've been using mis-matched dpns for consistency, and I'm sure the knitting will be smoother with a proper matching set!

I dug through my sock yarn to look at it as I need to use it up. I have enough yarn to make 4 pairs of socks. The rest will become sweaters and dresses for the dolls.

I will be starting the next pair of socks in November for DGS. Can't wait to start them as I've really love knitting socks and enjoyed this thread immensely.

@Diane, lovely socks. Love the pattern also.

@Celia, I will be back at socks but am knitting a coat for DD's cat and then a hat for her. Then I will be back to knitting socks.

I asked for 2 pairs of ChiaoGoo circular needles for my Xmas present this year. I want the ones with the longest cord on them. They will be for socks only. My other ones have a shorter cord and I can use them for other projects.

Yes, interesting pattern @Diane
I, too have started a second pair.  A fairly plain grey yarn (slightly mottled) so I'm knitting an easy lace pattern.  I've only ever done socks in plain knit.
Life's too short for ironing.
