Completed the first sock, but have to take a break to work on another pair before starting the second. I chose Classic Elite Alpaca Sox yarn. It is in a dark green color and very soft. I started the pattern using #2dpn as per the pattern. When I got to the heel I realized that once again I need to drop down to #1dpn because the pattern with this yarn and needle size was just too loose. I also changed the heel to the standard k1, s1 which gives me a closer and better fit.
