Sock Innovation Continues

The next pattern in Cookie A's Sock Innovation - "Sam" was made with Knit Picks "Gloss."  This is a merino/silk blend and I loved the colorway.  

I have really been partial to the monochromatic colorways which make the patterns in this book really pop.  The pattern is easy to follow, but you get a false sense of security with such a simple pattern. I did have to frog and start over several times.  Again, with all others you have to pay attention.  I'm closer to using up my stash and haven't had to buy any yarn for long project yet.  I am happy with the results.

I love this book! I don't have time to work through it systematically as you are doing, but I wish I did. Great work!
