Swing Socks Finished

So, while in Germany I started my Swing Socks. I was very excited about this technique, because it produces some really wild and beautiful patterning. The idea is based on Jazz music, but I found the instructions totally confusing with its references to  verses and  musical pauses.  I ended up mostly following the pictures and trying to fake the patterns.

You can see on the bottom sock below that it wasn't big enough and so I had to add rectangular section (not in the original pattern - it should be wave shaped!)

Anyway they don't look too bad, but I definitely need a class in this technique as I didn't quite get it right this time around.
