Flicker Socks

Finally finito! Pattern by Cookie of Monkey, Pomatomus and other excellent sock fame. Her wonderful patterns including this one came be found/purchased here
http://www.cookiea.com/index.php Needles - 2.5mm ebony dpns, yarn Opal Uni - in a jade/turquoisey type shade - colour no/name escapes me.

Sock one I whizzed through and the pattern is great, easy to follow and a interesting knit - through no fault of the pattern though I did get 2nd sock syndrome. I cast on for number two straight away and knit the cuff/leg but hit a brick wall for the heel & gusset etc. I knitted two rows yesterday - more crappy family stuff intervened - so the bulk of gusset, foot & toe were completed this afternoon.

I have two more pairs of socks on the needles and will endeavour to finish them before casting on for Cookie's Mona pattern which I purchased today.......am I a Cookie-Ho?

Your socks are so beautiful - you could make a fortune as a luxury sock baron. Sorry to hear that crappy family stuff continues. :-(
