Sock Part The First

I was a busy little beaver yesterday. Yes Mummy there is a sock this Christmas. Well... almost. I'm at the toe-shaping of the first sock and should be able to finish the second in time for Sunday. I'm using Opal Rodeo Cotton in colour #1170 on 2.5mm dpns. I bought this colour ages ago because I liked the look of it and I like it even more now that its knitted up. I wasn't going to bother matching the stripes but... Look how well the striping went on the heel and you just know I will be spending this afternoon cursing and ripping until I get the second sock to do the same!

The yarn is gorgeous and is striping so well it really would be a shame not to match them. Hope it works first time for you.
