This is just the basic sock pattern for the Lion Magic Stripes yarn, combined with the standard pattern in Getting Started Knitting Socks (highly recommend!). I stopped the toes at 16 stitches wide instead of making them pointier at 8. I didn't really like the look and this was my first time bucking a pattern! Basically, where you switch from a decrease/knit pattern on the toes to just repeating the decrease round - that's where I stopped. Oh, and I did a 3 needle bind off.
The yarn is Artyarns Supermerino 8 in Monet's Garden from Yarnmarket's Impressionist collection. It took a little less than 3 hanks for a, um, large women's size.

Wow! Them's some bright socks! :teehee: Lovely, though!!! :cheering:

I like that you adjusted the toes. I've found that I don't like the pointy toes either. Doesn't work when you have wider feet.

GREAT job! :thumbsup:

LOVE LOVE LOVE that yarn! You were right to use a simple sock pattern. It lets the yarn's colorations take the LIMELIGHT!
