Sock Madness Round 2

I've finished my socks for this round of Sock Madness. My group has 17 out of 20 people done, as of this morning. I loved this pattern and they fit beautifully. When I first received the gauge, yarn and needle statistics (before receiving the pattern) I knew that the yarn that the desinger used, on US size 1 needles would be nearly impossible for me to get 8.5 stitches to the inch. So, I chose a lighter weight yarn and then knit with US size 0s. This made for a near perfect gauge. I love the socks, knit in Elann's Sock It To Me 4 ply. I'm not sure how I'll do with the garter stitch foot, but it sure looks nice! :)
