My second pair of socks is finished! They are knitted in the Lumberjack colorway from Lion Brand Magic Stripes. I used #3s on them, too. However, this yarn was much heavier and stiffer to work with than my first pair. I was a little worried until I soaked them in Eucalan and blocked them. Now they are nice and soft, but thicker than the first pair of socks. Since I will be wearing these with athletic shoes on Fridays, they should be just right. The tiny bit of yarn you see in the upper corner is a ball of Regia. I have cast on for another pair of socks (How addictive is this?) using #2s this time.
