Delicous Over-The-Knee Socks, Part II

They are finally done! The Delicous Knee Socks by Laura Chau, the over-the-knee version. The yarn I used was Kirjo-Pirkka by Pirkanmaan Kotityö Oy, and the needles 2.0 mm Addi steel DPNs. I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. Knitting plain stockinette was enjoyable for a change, but the nearly two weeks they took to make was, I think, the maximum I want to spend on a pair of socks. I might do this pattern again, with some different colored yarn. The next time I'm going to continue the stockinette a little longer before starting the ribbing, but still make the ribbing the same length (they are knit toe-up).
