Mystery Socks Done!

A day late... but still rock'n...
I finished the toe on November 1st - so I missed Socktober by one day - but I still love my Mystery Socks:

Looks like Hurley likes them too :)

Mystery Socks

Pattern: Mystery Socks09 by Kristin Kapur of Through the Loops fame
Yarn: Socks that Rock in Beryl
Needles: Size 2 DPNs
Alterations: I only did 4 instead of 5 repeats on the leg.

I really enjoyed knitting these socks and looked forward to the new clue each week. I actually knit both socks at the same time so that I wouldn't be left with Second sock syndrome - for which I am very famous. I may have to do this for all my socks!

I knit quite a bit on these during the Rhinebeck roadtrips. The pattern was easy to memorize and they had just enough variety to keep up the interest. If you didn't knit these yet - I highly recommend them!

One of my friends had these last week at our knitting group. It's SUCH a cute pattern! And I really like the color on yours!

OMG. I just realized that I didn't read the pattern after I finished the heel turn and the top of my sock looks completely different! D'oh! Yours look AWESOME!

Love your colorway! I agree, it did help with SSS knitting them both consecutively :)

They have come out really well.

I'm still on the first sock, it's currently having some time out (I dropped a stitch and need to frog a few rows to fix it...)
