The pattern is Loopy (http://knitpicks.com/Loopy+Sock_PD50395220.html), although I'm using Silver's sock tute just as much as the pattern!

Fun loops! I even love the mis-matched dpns :mrgreen: Isn't it great feeling to have "turned the heel" and know you're on the last sprint to the toe? That was the best part of my first sock!

Those loops were a PIA, but yes, it's so nice to be on the home stretch! :) As for the dpn's, I'm working from my grandma's stash that I inherited. :)

I'm scared of socks, so I'm always very impressed... :)
And I also love the yarn.

I've been scared of socks for months! Then I did the ballet slippers from knitty, which I didn't even think of as being like socks till I got them done. :) Now that I've done that, I figured I should tackle socks!

I admire you! I am still wading around in the shallow end of the socks pool! It is my 2008 Goal: Learn to knit socks! Thanks for sharing! I look forward to your FO post!
