These are the first pair of socks I made. The pattern was in Interweave Knits and called for a Mountain Colors yarn. Well, I used DB Baby Cashmerino and LOVE how they feel. They are super soft and wash like a dream. Love that yarn to knit with too.
I don't have sock blockers - maybe the shape would look a bit better for being blocked.
For Christmas, I made my friend Lucia, the Canyon Hiking Socks from the Knit Cafe book. I had just enough Rowan Wool Cotton to finish them and they looked great (imho, anyway). I really liked how they shaped over the calf. Wish I'd taken a piccy.
Walk the Line last night was brilliant. Loved Mr Pheonix and Ms Witherspoon.
