I got my signed copy of Cookie A's book today!
The pattern I sample knit for Cookie:
Lindsay (Rav link)
Hand Jive Nature's Palette in Walnut - 2 skeins
size 2.50 mm KP Harmony dpns
Love the pattern. Not as simple as her Monkey socks, but with the triangular shapes, it had that certain feel. It was actually a pretty quick knit for me despite doing k4togs & ssskp's on the KP Harmony's. I would've preferred my KP nickel-plated but I was aiming for pattern gauge. For my own pair, I will definitely go with my metal dpns.
My pic of the first sock I knit for her:
Pic of the other side of the sock:
I was jamming in the sock pair for her deadline, so I forgot to take a pic of both socks. But I did remember to take a pic of the latest pair I knit from her patterns, one I can share. I have one more I can share after May 1 and another pair I can share after her second book gets published. That's right. She's working on her second sock book. Woohoo!
Fleece Artist merino wool in Lily Pond

Unintentional mod: Didn't move 1 stitch on each side of the instep for the gusset decreases thinking I didn't need to decrease as much. I was wrong. So my gusset doesn't look as pretty as the pattern.
