The swirl socks are complete! I had some major second-sock-syndrome with these. I've got to remember to always knit both socks at once.
The details -
Pattern: Swirl Socks by Sulafaye
Yarn: Socks that Rock Mediumweight in Henpecked
Needle: Addi Turbo 3.0mm (US2.5) 40"
Started: July 2007
Finished: September 2007
Mods: I used a 24 stitch short row toe, with provisional cast on over the needle, short-rowed down to 10 stitches. Knit one round before beginning pattern. Knit 46 rows of pattern and begin gusset on row 47. The original pattern would have made the foot about 2 inches too long. I knit the leg until it was as long as I like. I ended the pattern and knit 4 rows plain stockinette. Knit picot row and 4 more rows plain stockinette.

They are lovely and so comfortable. I'm looking forward to some cooler weather that will allow me to wear them.
