Finished. With minutes to spare! And, here's the proof--The Torino socks.
I ended up using Lisa's Sock! yarn in the St. Valentine color and size 0 (2 mm) needles. The patterns were adapted from the trilogy sets of both the Fanderl and Erlbacher books. It has a Joyce Williams short row heel/sole combination with gusset and the toe is based on one from an old Stahl book (I think). I had hoped to make the pattern available immediately (from Heartland Knits, of course), however, want to wait a bit so I can be sure if the accuracy of the directions. Sometimes a few days or weeks away from the instructions can give you fresh eyes to spot mistakes.
So, check back soon.
