Just in time for Easter: autumn inspired socks!
Pattern: Uptown Boot Socks by Jennifer Appleby from the Favorite Socks collection; originally published in the Winter 2003 issue of Interweave Knits. I knit the medium size without notable modifications.
Needles: Susan Bates US 1 dpns, set of 5.
These socks were one of those wonderful projects that worked out in every aspect, from the very beginning.
The yarn can only be described as delectable - soft, springy, and with a wonderful sheen. The colorway is luscious and interesting without being overwhelming. The yardage is generous - 8 grams remain after knitting socks to fit a woman's large foot.
The pattern is simple to knit, but engaging to watch. What more can you ask for?!?
