Just started these socks a few days ago. This is my first time knitting with OPAL ... loverly yarn.

Yarn: Opal Neon orange, red and pink colorway
Needles: Addi DP size 1
Pattern: RPM (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTrpm.html) from Knitty.com

I love this yarn and the pattern is fun.

Yes, lovely vive colour! Are you using 4 dpns rather than two circs?

Yes... on this pair. I had to start knitting right away and I didnt have 2 circs in that size (I just did an order with KnitPicks) the next pair will be on 2 circs, which I think will help with my tension issues.

I'm trying to actually knit some socks. Seems I have TONS of sock yarn in my stash yet no hand knit socks to be seen so I've challenged myself to knit socks! So far its working.

Update!

Still working on the first sock, but I'm loving how it is turning out.

I changed the pattern just a teensy bit. I did not continue the spiral pattern across the top of the foot because it would drive me to drink. :teehee:

My daughter allowed me to use her foot... pretty green toes! I can see a tiny hole in the picture, but not too bad for my first sock in ages.
