socks for Cookie A


test knit for Cookie A., originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

About a year ago I think I posted that I would be doing some test knitting for Cookie A. These are the "Angee" socks from her book "Sock Innovation" (rav link), (Amazon).

And the closeup:

Test Knit for Cookie A

It was fun to test knit and see things before everyone else... and I got to try out a yarn (Colinette Jitterbug) that I hadn't used before. I liked the yarn except it dyed my bamboo needles orange, and the yardage is pretty short. (I have small feet, so if I had made them to my size it probably would have been fine, but these actually got sent back minus 1/2 the toe rows on the second sock to Cookie 'cause they needed about 1/10th of a second skein to be finished.) Plus my name is in the book as one of the test knitters! Wohoo!
