Love this pattern! Love these socks! What more can I say? It was a great pattern for travel knitting once I got the hang of it and I really enjoyed knitting it. The yarn was a lot of fun too and I'm totally ok with the fraternal nature of these socks. I have a shirt that will go just perfectly with these and I can't wait to wear them both together and see if anyone notices. I lucked out with the fit considering I went up a needle size from the pattern. The chevron pattern seems to make them snug enough for me despite the fact that it uses several more stitches than I normally would for socks for me at this gauge. I think I may make a pair for HWJF using the stitch count for the large size. But for now, these are MINE! :-)

So now I just need to update my sock counters in the sidebar. Just a quick note that there will be a significant difference in the "Count Your Socks" counter. I somehow had it in my head that we were only supposed to count the ones we made for ourselves. In other words, socks made as gifts didn't count. Lynda cleared that up for me and now I'm going to fix up my counter. Just call me a big lame brain.
