2 skeins = 430.0 yards (393.2 meters), 113 grams

These turned out really nice. I was worried that the lace pattern wouldn’t go well with the multicolour yarn, but the LL stripes are quite distinct and actually show off the stitches well. I had very little pooling, and I had heaps of the wool left over.

My initial cast-off attempt was much too tight, so I tried out Jeny's surprisingly stretchy bind off. It took me a while to get the hang of it, but it’s much quicker than a sewn bind off. And the socks now fit over my chunky calves, so I’ll consider that a win!
