Rainbow Socks

Pattern: Basic sock pattern with legs done in a broken rib pattern. Rows 1 & 2: k2 p2. Rows 3 & 4: knit.
Yarn: Fortissima Colori, in shade 9072 - Sundown. Bought from Little Knits. I used 1 ball for each sock, had to wind on some of the second to get the colour order to match, and have about 1/8 of a ball left.
Needles: Size 2, Clover bamboo with one Plymouth bamboo for good measure. The plymouth needle was nicer to work with - a smoother surface.
Comments: Terry has long toes, so I ended up, on the second sock, adding an extra "straight" knit round to the first 4 toe decreases, so decreasing over 22 rounds rather than the 18 called for in the pattern. Putting the extra rounds in early gave a nicer shape and better fit to the toe.
Ended up: On Terry's feet!
