Finally I am done with April's Cookie A. Sock Club pattern, or at least the pattern I chose to do right now. There is another that I really like too...so many socks so little time.
These socks are everything I love about Cookie A. socks.
The twisted stitches, the traveling itty bitty cables, the 20 some page instructions with half a dozen charts. Seriously A-E charts for each sock. That's more than half a dozen. Love it!
It even cables down to the tippy tip of the toe. The yarn is Lorna's Laces new line that has some NASA fiber that is supposed to keep you cool when you are warm and warm when you are cool. So far me feet are hot. So......not sure about that. I'm not the biggest fan of Lorna's Laces anyway, I prefer and more saturated color, but that's just me. Some people commented that the Outlast (the funky regulating fiber) wasn't at all stretchy making this kind of pattern super hard. And that is mostly true, it is only 55% wool so not as stretchy as some might prefer especially when doing itty bitty twisted stitch cables.
I got June's yarn yesterday and the June patterns come out Wednesday! Oh the excitement!!!!
