I love the pattern on these socks.

I made these socks as a Christmas present for my MIL. I ended up having to knit the foot of the second one twice because I had just gotten my first Addi Turbos (in so-called size 1) and was so excited to try them that I switched mid-sock. What a bad idea. After knitting the foot and wondering why the second sock came out so much longer than the first, I measured the Addi's and discovered they were 2.5mm (more like a US1.5). Very annoying. Well, I learned that lesson the hard way.
