Coriolis Socks

Here are my Coriolis socks:
(there are more pictures on my blog)

I used two strands of Trekking XXL, color 100, and got 7 stitches per inch using two 3.0 mm 24″ circular needles. I have been a die-hard dpn user for years, but decided try two circs again and I am very pleased with my results. I think I have been converted, LOL!!!

I just got some of the Harmony fixed circulars in 2.25 mm and 2.75 mm and am looking forward to casting on another pair of socks. I've got five pair going right now, so I have to finish at least one of those pairs before I start another pair, :-( Two of those pairs are from the New Pathways book, so I will still be having a LOT of fun!!!

Those are beautiful!! Gotta love the
Trekking yarn. I never do find any in great colorways like that. In fact, I rarely ever find any Trekking in the yarn store desert. Anyhow, the yarn is perfect for the design.

Thanks! I have to admit this is the only colorway in the trekking yarn that I've really liked. I like the more subtle hand-dyed yarns, rather than the ones that have a true stripe or pattern. Holding two strands together really broke up the runs of color, too.

Hi - love the colors on those socks!
I just found this group over on Ravelry,and I have no clue where to sign up for the blogger group. If you could let me know, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Boy, they look terrific! I bought some Trekking and have never tried two strands together. Is it difficult to work with that way? Do you wear one of those thimble gadgets I saw for keeping the two yarns separate?
