My belated & last Project Spectrum Feb/Mar project
pattern: Cookie A's BFF socks
yarn: Fleece Artist (FA) Polar Sea
needle size: size 1 (2.25 mm) Susan Bates sock set
- Standard Slip stitch heel (sl 1, k1, etc) instead of the St st one called out for in the pattern since I was nervous about the FA holding up in straight St st in this area
- Used the older version of pattern so cable pattern wasn't centered after the heel set up, reversed the asymmetry on the second sock to make the pair mirror each other
Thoughts - I love how the FA feels and knits up. No wonder some of the more popular colors online go in a blink of the eye. I'd knit this pattern again, especially since Cookie revised the heel set up, but I still need to go through my list of all my Cookie A patterns first. I also find it ironic that I'm tackling her less easy patterns first. Well, one day I will knit her Hederas & Monkeys, but for now I'm going to tackle her Twisted Flower pattern.
