Finally sat down and put the directions and chart for my Opera Socks into a .pdf and uploaded it to Ravelry. Yay!

I really love how the pattern swirls around. I might need to knit a pair in a nice blue, to look like waves. I probably wouldn't knit this is a super variegated yarn, as the pattern would get lost. The Crystal Palace Yarn's Panda Cotton Print in the photo (colorway Red Cinnamon, though it's more pink/orange) has plenty of interest without taking away from the swirls. In a plain or kettle-dyed color, the pattern itself will pop even more.
Do let me know if you find any errors. Enjoy!
