Hurrah! The socks are done. I love the colors in this yarn and the thin stripes. I’m pretty happy with the results. I wish they were a little more snug on my feet, but I can live with it.

The Sockotta yarn isn’t very soft, but seems like it may be durable. We’ll see after I wear them a few times.

These are my second pair of completed socks, and now I feel like I may want to venture out into something a little more complicated. I’m considering the Jaywalker socks. I love the way they look knit up in Regia Design Line Kaffe Fassett, and I just happen to have two skeins of that at home! 😉

    Congrats on your 2nd pair! They look great. I am starting my 3rd pair too. I think I heard that if you wash the Socketta, it will soften up? I could be wrong…but hopefully it’s right!

    i juuussstt bought the exact same colorway to make probably the exact same pattern. it kind of begs for it, though, doesn’t it?
