Comments: As I said on my project page on Ravelry: love the pattern, love the yarn, do NOT like the combination of the two. It was a pleasure (and an addiction) to knit these socks. This is only the second time I've done 2-at-a-time socks the magic loop method, only this time I did cuff-down. I enjoyed the little snags along the way that challenged me to adapt the DPN pattern to 2xML. While working on these, I've been inspired to try, like many others on Ravelry, to take any pattern and convert it to either cuff-down or toe-up. This is true especially after skimming through the Charlene Schurch book More Sensational Socks. I'll be wearing these to knit night Thursday!
