I finished up one of the socks this evening. I was motivated by the arrival of the second sock pattern in the Decadently Dark Sock Club, and the PayPal email telling me that the yarn was on its way. It fits pretty well, but I can tell that I have a lot to learn about socks, fortunately I have some very good books on the subject. For now I am knitting them according to the pattern and not doing anything too fancy. I can understand their appeal, they can be a very quick project, if you don't have lots of other things on your needles...I have already cast on the other sock and done a couple of rows.
