They are finished!! I am so happy with them. The colour is fun, and the pattern was interesting and enough to keep the boredom away, even with the second sock.

Pattern: Baudelaire (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTbaudelaire.html)
Size: Large
Yarn: Bernat Sox in colour 'Pink Hot', less than 2 balls
Needles: Addi Turbo, size 0 using magic loop
Modifications: used magic cast-on for toe instead of figure 8

Love the socks! I'm addicted to socks right now - have been since I started knitting the suckers forever ago. Good job!

Knitqueen, The socks came out just beautiful!! I'm not a sock knitter, but seeing how great your's came out, makes me want to start!

Are going to make another pair? If so, what color would you make them in this time?
Have a great day!:hug:

Thank you! I think if I made another pair, I'd make them in a slightly variagated yarn - maybe something neutral, or at least less bold than the hot pink ones!! I like the hot pink, but you can't wear that everyday :lol:.

The only other thing I'd do differently is that I would not do the instructions for the larger instep. I don't have dainty feet or ankles so I thought it would be necessary, but the leg part is just a tad looser than the very snug fit of the foot portion and I wish it was all just as snug. They do fit fine, and stay up, but I'd like that extra snugness.
