FO: Noro Striped Socks

They're finished! Actually, I finished them November 23rd, but have neglected blogging about them.

Here's the specs:

Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock, color s164, about 3/4 of a skein
Pattern: Wendy's Fingering Weight Toe-Up Socks with Gusset Heel
Needles: US 2 (2.75 mm)
Mods: None!

I really enjoyed knitting these socks and it's going to be hard to give them away (they're a gift). But I have enough yarn left over for a pair for myself. And no, I didn't find a way to stretch the yarn :) I used the yarn leftover from these socks plus a new ball for this pair.

Next up, my NaKniSweMo sweater. I didn't manage to finish it by the end of the month, but it's almost done and I hope to block it later this week.

I simply ADORE these socks! I haven't given the Noro sock yarn a try yet but, after seeing yours, will add them to my yarn wish list!

I love the way the color mitch match and that they are not the same.. I found knitting with Noro Sock its best ( for me at least) to knit with plastic or methal needles. Bamboo needles kind of get the yarn not to slide. Like it get stuck on the needle. What do you think?

I really need a pair of these Noro stripies! Are they soft enough on your feet?
