I loved knitting these! Just what I was looking for, and the colors are great. I made the largest size, knitting on size 0 DPNS.
Of course, now, I'm sockless. I'm tempted to cast on for another pair of socks, but I think I should wait for my Flock Club SOTM kit. The first pattern is the Firebird that I know I'm going to want to dive into the second it gets here. To complicate matters, this weekend, I did buy new sock yarn:
Which a good pal pointed out would be absolutly perfect for these socks that are in the new spring IK:
Therefore, my current sock plan is to finish up my nerd socks, while I wait for the Spring IK to arrive at my doorstep. I'll start the Twisted Tulip socks as I wait for the Firebirds to arrive. And, persumably, drop the Tulip socks like a hot potato once the Firebird kit arrives. That way, I'll knock off something from my Mission Possible list, and give myself not just ONE but TWO awesome pairs of socks on the horizon.
But not be 'sockless' until then. Because that would be a freaking tragedy.
