Here's what I made...
Yarn: Opal Rainforest Doctorfish
Needles: 2.5mm Bamboo DPNs
Pattern: My standard sock pattern with an eye of partridge heel flap
They've winged their away across the globe, from here to there and here they are on the surprised, but very happy, recipient's feet! (Note the stripes match pefectly! That did threaten to drive me insane LOL)
Look how well they fit!
Note: Ignore the date on the photos, somebody fiddled with their camera and now they can't reset the date LOL

OMG, they are so nice!! It's important to me that stripes match, and you did a great job. They remind me of spring, with their Easter-y colors, and of course it's spring there, isn't it.By , on 22 October, 2006

Thanks for the compliments :o)By OzKnitter, on 25 October, 2006
She's not a knitter but she "gets" how much is involved in knitting them and I know she's delighted with them, and that makes it all worthwhile.
Those are really nice!! :) What kind of ribbing is that?By Saffron, on 26 October, 2006
Those socks are wonderful. I have a ball of this yarn and it's nice to see it knitted up. Good job on matching the stripes. I don't mind odd stripes, but when they match up it's pretty cool :-)By Sandra, on 28 October, 2006
