Tidal Wave Socks Are Complete!

I just finished the Tidal Wave Socks by Deby Lake.

I really enjoyed this pattern! I used 2 skeins of Panda's Cotton Yarn in Crystal Pink. I really enjoyed this yarn, too. The yarn did like to separate a little, but it's so soft & silky that I continued to work with it. I used 2 Knit Picks cirs, US size 2 for the first sock and for 1/2 of the second sock, then one of my cirs broke. (Please see previous post.) So, I had to finish the second sock with 1 KP cir and 1 Addi's Turbo needle.

I think that this is my best pair of socks so far, if I do say so myself. I had originally planned on knitting these socks for myself, but a loved one had admired them from afar, so I think that these are going to be gifted to her.

Something that I did differently with this time, since I decided that I was making them for someone else, I counted all the rows so that they would match perfectly and they did! I almost don't want to have to give them up. LOL!

Now.....what to do next? I have some variegated Opal yarn just waiting to become a pair of socks. I have The Little Box of Socks and there are several choices. Stayed tuned........
