No problems with this pattern so far! Colors are great! Have only worked the leg of one, but gauge is fine, even unblocked the gauge is right on the money. Am a bit concerned about length, but I think I'll fiddle with it a bit and see what happens.

Worst Pattern I've Ever Bought! I purchased this yarn and the pattern for the mossy colorway as I love knitting stranded anything and need some new socks. Plus, they look pretty showy. I knit up a swatch right away. There's not even a chance of obtaining the given gauge over "stranded stockinette." Stranded knitting makes square stitches and thus a square gauge. Your stitches and rows per inch are equal. (check your projects at home that use stranding every row and Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting pg 164 in the chapter "Creating Your Own Designs" if you don't believe me!) This pattern excpects a gauge over stranded stockinette of 9.5 sts and 11 rows per inch. You can absolutely bet I wouldn't have wasted money on this kit if I'd know what the gauge was! It's not square! My beautiful little swatch knit in the round over the stranded body of the sock pattern before being steeked and lightly blocked and made with required yarn on suggested needles has a gauge of exactly 9 stitches and 9 rows per inch. Without being able to get the correct row gauge for a given stitch gauge, the sock will be far too long, tall, and the heel will stick out too far in addition to a very long, tapering toe. The calf shaping will also be in the wrong place. This is completely unacceptable and I honestly believed that a tester or tech editor would catch something like this before a pattern could be sold under the IDP at Knit Picks! I teach knitting and square stitches in stranded knits is one of the first things we discuss in stranded knitting intro classes! At this point I'd like my money back due to the pattern having an unworkable gauge even as stated in the 'bible' of Fair Isle knitting. If only I'd first checked the Ravelry projects and read the tales of woe from everyone else's gauge nightmares! It'd certainly have saved me from wasting my yarn budget on socks that I'll have to completely redesign later and leaving me high and dry for the project I need to be finishing up now!
