I have finished my first pair of socks and I love them -they fit well, the colour is glorious and the pattern is lovely. I made a few mucks ups like with the toe grafting (need to practice that one) but they still didn't come up too badly. I haven't knitted with something so fine as this 3 ply from the Knittery and it was very lovely to work with.

almost done...

and blocking.
specs: Yarn is the Knittery's merino slim sock in Bloody Mary, 100g bought but I probably only used 2/3 of it.
Pattern is bex's luminaires which is free on The Knittery's website.
I am off to decide what to cast of for the next pair now.
