Comments: As one of my friends said to me, finishing these socks gives me braggin' rights. This was a very challenging pattern. Not for working on when you want to just knit and chat. (In other words, don't take it with you to knit club) I would not recommend it for beginners. I love it though. It's very well written and even though I found myself making stupid mistakes and frogging way too often, I enjoyed knitting it. I definitely have a passion for twisted cabled traveling stitch knitting.
Someone asked me "Why yellow?" I don't really know. I don't wear yellow as a rule. I love the bright color of this one, though it is very hard to photograph.
Changes I made in this pattern. I knit the toe the way I like. The pattern has a shorter toe. I wanted it a little longer. That's about it.

I'm looking forward to wearing these. Especially now that we have snow on the ground.
Have a great day.
