And I have lots of pictures to prove it!
Here are the specs again:
Yarn: Jitterbug by Colinette in Mardi Gras
Needles: 3mm Addi Turbos (magic looped)
Pattern: Garter Rib on the ankle from Sensational Knitted Socks, and plain stockinette foot.
Number of stitches cast on: 48
The verdict: I really like 'em. I actually might knit with this yarn again, since while the yardage looks like it sucks, I actually have quite a bit of yarn left over. I think I could have made the ankles 2-3 inches longer than I did.
