Pattern: Generic: Cast on 60 stitches, knit top down, 2x2 ribbing, stocking stitch legs and feet, short row heels. I knit the leg of one sock then went to another set of needles and knit the leg of the second sock. Then, I knit one heel, moved to the second sock and knit the second heel, and so on. I like to do this whenever possible as it's easier for matching up the stripes. I also find that there is no temptation to set the first sock aside and start a different pair, thus avoiding any chance of "second sock syndrome".
Size: Lady's Medium
Needles: 2.0 mm / US #0
Knit on Knitter's Pride double-pointed needles, my favorites.
Yarn: Regia 4-ply Jacquard Color #5242
75% new wool, 25%Polyamide
I have now finished 3 pairs of socks this year and hoping to finish 12 pairs before the end of the year. I'm ahead of schedule and I like that.

I like your socks, bright & beautiful. I'm knitting my first pair of adult size socks with a Mystery Sock group. So far I am enjoying the process and I am told it will become addictive. Do you agree?
