I frogged these socks long ago and recently began them anew in a smaller needle size (size 0 instead of size 2). What a difference!!!! They knit up more quickly and with nicer stitch definition and the stripes seem to work better, too.
I still have to finish the foot on sock #2, but I was so happy with them today, I thought I'd post on them.
Why am I so happy with them? Well, they are nice, yes. But the real reason is that they are found! They'd gone AWOL last week, and were found fraternizing with the new furniture at my mother's house.
You're home. :-)
