Yup, thats pair #40 done and dusted! The pattern is pretty, but oh, it starts the round on a purl! So I have a purl ladder :( I'm very unhappy about it, and it didn't block out coz my sock blockers are too small! ARGH! Oh well. I got quite bored with the pattern too, the twisted stitches are hard going, although very effective. The yarn was nice, but I always like to work with Regia!
Pair #41 are on the needles! I'm using the arachne sock calculator as these are a pair requested by a friend with large-ish feet. She likes to wear them long, about mid-calf length, and I'm usually a "just beneath the calf muscle" sock starter. She was brilliant though, gave me all sorts of measurements, just hope they fit now!
