My Fail Safe socks are now complete. The pattern was a lot of fun and it doesn't get lost in the variegated yarn. Here's a picture of the socks just before I started the toes. I knit 7 1/2 repeats of the pattern for the instep (60 rounds).
Here are the completed socks. (Visit my gallery to see full details on all of my completed projects).
