So I come back from my wedding and honeymoon (I promise pictures and stories later!!) to find that Twist Collective has launched, and therefore I can now show you the socks I knit for Cookie A! Here's the FO shot I took when I sent them off to her:
The sock pattern is called Maelstrom and the pattern is available for $6.00 through Twist Collective.
These socks were really fun to knit and flew off the needles (I knit them in about a week since I knew I was on deadline!), and they really weren't hard at all. The stitch pattern is a simple, short repeat that really looks complicated after it's done but is actually really easy to memorize and "read" as you go. I especially love the diagonal line across the foot, such a distinctive Cookie A design feature!
As always her pattern is impeccably written and fun to follow, I always recommend her designs to anyone who wants to knit a "special" sock . . . I may have to make myself a pair of these to keep!
