Glynis Socks

My socks are finished and they are beautiful!

Unfortunately, I still suck at taking photos of my own feet.

Pattern: Glynis from Sock Innovation by Cookie A.
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Multi
Needles: Addi Turbos size 1 (2.5mm)

After years of reading knit blogs that rave about Lorna’s Laces sock yarn, this is the first time I have used it so I feel like I’m a little late to the party. To be fair, I could have started this right after I bought the yarn at Webs way back in aught eight, but that's beside the point. Anyhow, I will reserve final judgment on the yarn until I see how well it holds up, but it was nice to work with and the colors are very pretty. I suspect I’ll wear these socks a lot and I’m hoping that the 20% nylon content will mean that they wear well.

Like many of the patterns in Cookie’s book, this one is charted. But it’s a pretty simple chart and I was able to work on these while watching movies or chatting with a group. This is important because I am a multi-tasker. Luckily, I checked the errata ahead of time so I knew about the one tiny error in the chart. So far I've really enjoyed all of the Cookie A. sock patterns I've tried and I plan to make many, many more.
