Just half-an-inch more to go on the toes for the second sock! But I had purchased four skeins of the same yarn (since I'm used to the notion of two 50-gram skeins to knit a pair), so no problem --
This is my second pair of Broadripple. This time I used Knit Picks Dancing (fingering, 50 grams/253 yards) and US 2 DPNs. Since the original pattern is designed for Fixation (which is thicker than Dancing) and US3 DPNs, I modified the pattern a little -- I added two stitches in each repeat of pattern, making it total of 64 sts, instead of 56 sts.
Fits comfortably on my foot. Hopefully they fit my mom's too.
As I mentioned before, I just love this pattern. The pattern designer Rob Matyska says he's working on "Broadripple 2." I can't wait!
This is the third pair this year -- well on track for my goal of a dozen for the year!-- but knitting adult socks with fingering weight can be tough. After the gusset decrease is done on the second sock, the rest felt like never-ending!
I forgot to bring the copy of pattern for 64-sts heel turning to Montreal, and Charlie kindly sent me what I needed via email. Thank you!

I'm again project-less. I want to knit something other than socks for a while, but what should it be? I keep looking, but I still haven't found a vest pattern that I want to knit.
