Passion Stripes Complete

I steeked Mom's Cardigan, then realized 2 things, the lighter colored zipper was just not going to work, and it was too long. So I will have to go zipper shopping, with the hopes that they have increased their stock since I was last there. So instead I took the time to finish up these fabulous socks!Pattern: Hidden Passion Socks by Jaya Srikrishnan.
From Favorite Socks by Interweave Knits.
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill SuperSock in Blue (50g) and
left over STR Dragon Dance (30g).
Needles: Size US0/2mm circular.
Started with KP Harmony 32" circular, but it broke so I switched to HiyaHiya Steel 40" circular.
Construction: This sock is so much fun to knit!
Although I must admit, I did not want to do the XO theme, and instead I did a 2x2 stripe with blue purled, I think I would have gotten even more enjoyment out of knitting this sock had I just gone ahead and did the pattern as designed! Wonderful pattern. I also would have liked a more substantial cuff....but I ran out of yarn! I might go back and do another cuff in the blue.
Love these socks!
