Pattern:  Usual Hybrid Sock Pattern

  Lang Jawoll Magic (About 3/4 of one 100g ball, though I didn't measure it)
Method:  Hand knitting
Completed:  November 23, 2012.

These are my standard socks -- toe up, following Wendy's Toe-Up pattern, and Cat Bordhi's Riverbed Arch expansion/plain heel.   For the ankle, I did entrelac to mix up the colours and break the striping.

I liked the feel of the yarn, and the self-striping was fun.  This ball didn't have the same problem as the last colourway I used for socks, where there was a long stretch of almost-black in one sock.  These are clearly "fraternal", because the colour changes were long, and I didn't bother trying to match them up.  Water's like that!

These did knit up a bit loose -- maybe a teensy bit long for my foot, loose in the heel, and I should not have added stitches for the cuff on the ankle.
