I finished my Bellatrix socks on Sunday night and wore them on Monday--we've still got some cold rainy days here in New England. They are very comfy and I think the colors are great. I still have 50g of yarn left!!! Enough for a pair of baby socks. Here they are.
Pattern Bellatrix by Monkey Toes
Needles US 2½ / 3.0 mm (ribbing) US 1 / 2.25 mm
Yarn MadelineTosh Sock (color Chartres)

If I make them again I would make a bit of a change. The heel flap is quite short, and although it fits and feels fine, I think I would prefer a longer heel flap. I think I would also go down to a US0 (2.0mm) needle. Again, the sock fits nicely, but it is not very snug. The pattern makes it a bit loose--but that sort of works with this look.

All in all, a lovely pair of socks.

That yarn looks like it was meant to be Bellatrix! Very cute!
