Yipee, I am glad to be done with this pair of socks and on to a new project. Socks are fun, but after the satisfaction and challenge of finishing the first sock, the second sock seems like a bit of a chore. My Hiking Socks fit like a dream and the stripes match up really well. I think I am catching on to how to make the stripes match up. Not sure what I will make next... I have a lot of sock yarn to use.
