Well, I think they are quite pretty! I was saving up to buy the book, but then got the opportunity to register for a workshop with Cookie A. I decided to take the workshop, just for the chance to meet her and see what she's like. Hopefully I'll be able to get the book before then.

I also think they are gorgeous. Was there something about the pattern which you didn't enjoy?
Somehow I got that impression.

I think they are just fantastic! I don't have her 2nd book - but now I feel tempted! I love the soft rose color also. Just gorgeous.

This looks like a tough pattern, but the socks are beautiful, and they are both done!

If these aren't pretty, I would hate to see what you call ugly socks. ;)

My first thought when I scrolled down and saw just the picture was, "Wow, what a gorgeous pair of socks!"

Wait until they've been off the needles for a week or three, and you'll see it too!
