Finished - quite like them! I even like it better when worked with two separate self patterning yarns. If I did it again, I would skip the turquoise cuff and toe, too bright for the rest of the yarn. Messed up a little after the cuff of the first sock as I mixed the two yarns and had a huge float ACROSS the socks opening - not a good idea ;-)
Will probably also use this pattern again to blend colours for leftover socks, just app. 5-6 rows with the pattern before continuing with the new colour. However, glad they are done now, I am not too keen on working on something with two balls of yarns dangling currently.
Also part of the Sockenmusterkiste-KAL

Jan 3d Finished first sock -exactly 30g (should have weighed yarn BEFORE starting to knit, well…
Left are about 19g each of the beige and blue yarn and 10g of turquoise yarn - should be well enough for second sock. However, decided to make female size as leg might be a little too tight for male calves - just 57 stitches.

Fun KAL in Restend group - so I will make this pattern in leftovers from socks which I do not really like - will make nice male socks, I hope!
