Ta da! I've finished my second pair of socks and they're fabulous! They are the famous Jaywalker pattern (available for free on Ravelry). Raverly says 4480 people have made this pattern!

I'm trying to start a toe-up pair of socks but having trouble with the figure 8 cast on and with my guage and it's really shitting me actually. I love knitting but I always have trouble with starting a new project, it's so stressful choosing the exact right yarn, colour, size, etc etc. I'm tempted just to do the socks from the cuff down but I don't want to run out of yarn like I did with the Jaywalkers and have to buy a new ball which would be from a different dye lot. You can see the very different toe on one of the socks. It doesn't bother me too much but I'd rather it didn't happen regularly.

Lovely woolly socks for this woolly-sock weather!!!

You're probably the only one who'd notice the dye-lot difference, and the rest of us would think you were awfully clever for knitting socks!
