I finished the toe on the second RPM sock from the Summer 2006 Knitty before work this morning. The second sock has to be the fastest sock I've ever knit! I did the ribbing on Sunday, the leg on Monday, the heel and foot on Tuesday, and the toe this morning.
I'm quite happy with them! I followed the pattern for the heel on the first sock, but I got some nasty holes in my short row heels, so I switched to the method that Wendy uses in the Knitty tutorial for short row toes. My heels look perfect using this formula.
I did the funky star toe on the socks, and they look cool, but now that I'm wearing them, they're a bit uncomfortable. It's the same feeling that you get when you're wearing stockings that the toe gets twisted on.
All in all, I love this pattern!
I still can't believe that I dyed this yarn myself. I think that really impressed my co-workers too. One of them keeps coming up to me when I'm knitting, and saying, "I can't believe you dyed that yarn!". It's quite flattering.
