I already did a rant on these socks here if you missed it.
Because I knit them tight, they weren't a pleasant knit for me. They quickly got boring while staying a slow knit. I never got the pattern firmly enough in my mind so I didn't have to look at the chart for every row.
The dark brown was a bit of a strain on my aging eyes. I think I may have been able to memorize the stitch pattern with a lighter color.
Someday I'd like to be able to say I knit every sock in Cookie's book so even after all the complaining, I'm glad I knit these socks.
The fit is perfect. I plan to forget the chore of knitting them and enjoy wearing them. But, I won't be knitting this pattern again.
Pattern: Glynis from Cookie's Sock Innovation book.
Yarn: Shi Bui, 100% Superwash Merino wool.
Needles: Options 2.25mm circulars.
The pattern is loaded with knit three togethers, next to impossible when knitting so tight. I ended up using an alternative right leaning double decrease: knit two together, return to left needle, pass next stitch over the knit two together and off the needle, slip knit two together stitch back to the right hand needle.
