DK Socks progress

I got a lot of work done on my DK socks over the holiday weekend. I’m already well past the heel flap and gusset. I’m still sorting out how I feel about the fit of these socks but I love the way they look. I’m knitting the number of stitches that corresponds to the foot size I make for fingering weight socks, but it feels a little too big. I actually decreased by 4 stitches in the middle of the leg and it helped but it could probably go down by another 4 and still fit. I was surprised at how loose they were since I’m usually such a tight knitter. I suspect it may be due in part to the thickness of the two yarns I am using. If I knit another pair with this method I will have to try a lighter fingering weight yarn.
