Here is the Opal sock I finished up on the trip out west. DD loves it. Should be starting the mate real soon. "I promise"
As for the "other socks", I am going to listen to the majority and keep going with my 2's for a bit and see what I think. If I don't like the fabric of the body of the foot, I'll only rip back to the end of the lace and use the 1's, leaving the lacy part done on the 2's. (I forgot to mention before that this is 8 stitches more than I usually cast on, 80 instead of 72, to accommodate the 16 stitch pattern repeat. Another reason I was worried about the "big" cuff) But I will keep pluggin' along for now.
Joansie - the yarn I am using is from Elann.com and is their Colori, "Sock it to me!" Collection - color #33. For the body of the sock I am going to use Lang Jawoll in a 'brite' pink/fuchsia #568/06. I'm loving the combo. (There is a pic in my album)
