I've had these socks on the go for ages. I think I started the first one about 2 years ago, when I was a relatively new knitter. I wanted to make the second sock with the pattern reversed but didn't have the skills to do so. I recently found this blog post on reversing the Pomatomus pattern so spent last week making sock 2. While I like the end result I did find these really tedious to knit. I prefer the reversed pattern to the original, although that may be due to an improvement in my knitting.
Here's the knitty details:
Needles: Bamboo 2.5mm DPNs
Yarn: Can't remember, bought it ages ago in Liberty. It's quite stretchy so I think it's got elastic in it. Used Less than 2 50g skeins. The colour is semi solid.
