Finished socks!

The Pattern: Wendy Johnson's Fingering Weight Toe-up Socks With Gusset Heel. Made large size at 9 stitches per inch to result in "medium" size. Knitted both socks at once on two 2mm Addi Turbo circular needles. Used Judi's Magic Cast-on and Jeny's Super Stretchy Bind-off.

The Yarn: One skein of Colinette Jitterbug.

The Needles: Knitted both socks at once on two 2mm Addi Turbo circular needles.

The Construction: Followed numbers for large size, knitting at 9 stitches per inch to result in "medium" socks. Used Judy's Magic Cast-on and Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-off. Up until now I've knitted my socks top down because I'm very good at casting on loosely and none of the usually recommended stretchy bind-offs have ever worked for me ... Jeny has certainly changed that! And I must say that, much as I love the fit of the heel I use for my top-down socks (another Wendy Johnson design), this one is even better! ... like a second skin. And, bonus features for ease of turning: no short rows, no picking up stitches.
