I love these socks and look forward to wearing them because they are just wonderful. The pattern is lovely and the yarn... well what can I say about Koigu that hasn't been said before? The stuff is gorgeous and my only complaint is that I don't have any more of it in my stash. I'll have to fix that soon.
When I pulled these out of my UFO pile on April 15th, there was little more than 2 toes on a pair of circular needles. Since then, I've finished about 4 other socks (not pairs) and worked on a bunch of other stuff. What I'm saying is that these are a nice, easy knit and that it didn't require huge concentration or dedication to get them finished. It all boils down to the method of knit - 2 at a time. I hate it. It just doesn't work for me and with rare exceptions, I won't be doing it again. I crave variety so I like having two different socks on the needles at all times. That way I can go back and forth and spice things up a little bit.
