Smaug Socks, Finished!

Smaug socks 
I have finished my Smaug socks!  The pattern was Smaug Socks and I knit them in Sweet Georgia Yarns Tough Love Sock in Lollipop.  This was my first time using this yarn and I really like it (which is good since I have several more skeins).

This was also my first time using the Addi Flexi Flips needles.  I know a lot of people really like these, but they didn't really work for me.  It probably has something to do with the way I hold my needles, but they just never felt comfortable in my hands.  I also found that my gauge was looser on these than on double points.  It wasn't exactly as loose as if I had gone up a needle size, but it was looser than I normally am on US 1's (2.25mm).   Finally, experimenting with these while I was dealing with arm issues probably wasn't the smartest thing I could have done, so I might hold on to them and give them another chance at some point.  I know a lot of people just love these, but I also know I'm not the only one who isn't finding them to be a perfect fit for their knitting style.

The next pair of socks will be knit on double points!
