Emerald City Socks Done

I'm having fun reviewing my sock yarn stash to decide what to knit for the August Sock A Month KAL 4.

Meanwhile, I needed to get the Emerald City socks done and off the needles.

Pattern: 60 stitch cuff using stitch pattern 107 from Japanese Knitting Pattern Book 250.

Yarn: Lisa Souza Sock! 75% superwash wool, 25% nylon

Color: Emerald City

Needles: Addi Turbo #1

Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch in stockinette

Here's a close up of the stitch pattern.

It's interesting and I like it, but it isn't going become one of my favorites.

Once my socks were done, I used up most of the left over Emerald City yarn with some dark green Bretton to make a pair of small kid socks for CIC.

Pattern: Winging Worsted Weight Socks on 32 stitches.

Yarn: Green Patternworks Bretton with left over Emerald City yarn.

Needles: #5 Addi Turbo circulars

Gauge: 5 stitches/inch 7 rows/inch
