Toe Up Self Spiraling RPM's

rpm socks in wollmeise am kalten polar
I finished my March socks today and took them outside for a little photo shoot. I frogged these socks so darn many times that I must have knit them two and a half times. The gorgeous yarn held up splendidly to the repeated ripping and the colors kept my enthusiasm from fading.

Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise superwash sock yarn, color "Am Kalten Polar" in medium-deep color saturation
Pattern: RPM from knitty
Needles: Addi double pointed 2.0mm (US size 0)
Modifications: Everything except the purl three knit six in the original pattern. Knit toe up using magic cast on, increases were made so the toe sloped gently, stitch count was a multiple of 9 minus 1 for the left foot, multiple of 9 plus 1 for the right foot to allow for auto spiraling, short row heel with double wraps, knit one purl one sewn bind-off from Vogue Knitting page 51.
left foot spirals up and to the left

Those are beautiful!!! I clicked on the link to the pattern, and now I know why they didn't interest me in the first place! I do not care for the designer's choice in yarn, but yours look BEAUTIFUL! I think they will be on my to do list! :) :) Thank you for sharing!

Oh yours look fabulous!
I'm doing the same pattern but I've got about 1/2 a sock to go and they don't look half as good as yours.

Thank you all for the kind comments, these were my first pair of socks for myself ever, so I really wanted something I would love. The great yarn helped a lot!
