I finally finished a pair of turquoise socks; these are Opal Magic. I have large ankles which explains the cuff area, not to mention that I finished them last night in time to wear them to bed and wore them all night long as it was cold. Next time I will make them longer in the cuff area.

These are 2 pair of socks in the same colorway; the one on the left is a pair by my friend Colleen done on her knitting machine as a test, and they look perfect. She only has to kitchener the toe on the left one. I hand knit the ones on the right for my sister, and the toes have been waiting for a couple of months for me to kitchener them or find someone kind enough to do that for me. I suck at kitcheneering due to knitting with the right hand and sewing with the left. It doesn't orient well at all.
I thought this would be a good example of both styles.
