I really enjoyed this pattern. I thought it was really fun to knit and I love the look of the spiraling stitches. The instep was a bit tricky but with some tips from our instructor, Jeannie, I got the concept of how the stitch pattern was "moving". The designer also does a nice job in the book at explaining what the pattern is doing and what to watch for.
I love how they feel on my feet. Koigu is a very nice yarn with a tight ply. I love the colors in this yarn too. I have knit with Koigu before and had the socks stretch quite a bit so I am hoping that knitting on a smaller needle size, which I did with these socks, will solve that problem.
Pattern: Rainbow Swirl by Ann McClure from the book Sock Club
This pattern is very beautiful and so I picked a solid colored heathered yarn to show it off. I have been surprised at how quickly these socks are coming along. I seem to always feel that way when I knit sock patterns from a chart. I think I spend more time at each sitting because I like to see the pattern form.
What can I say? I am totally addicted to knitting socks.
