They have stretched out a little bit but I wonder how they'll be after washing. Since I followed Silver's Sock Class, (being only the second pair of socks I have knit up) I didn't worry about gauge or measuring. I probably could have done with casting on fewer stitches as the cuffs of the socks were a bit bigger than my ankle anyway. I feel confident enough with socks now, however, to follow a stricter pattern next time.

I knit a pair of socks for my nephew a while ago, using the same yarn (different colors) and they seem to have held up pretty well without much stretching.

I don't want to say definitely the yarn stretching is a problem until I knit a pair more tailored to the size of my ankles and feet
