I had the pleasure of test-knitting one of the patterns from Cookie A.'s new book, Knit. Pray. Love. The book is officially available for pre-orders, and it comes out on November 20th. Hence, test knitters were given the green light to talk about the socks we knit!
I knit In and Out, a fabulous pattern!
I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, and the color is Periwinkle. I knit this pair on size 0 needles, and it took me slightly over two weeks to finish.
If you have never test knit before, I highly encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity, should it present itself. It was a wonderful experience to interact with other knitters to work out kinks in the pattern and tweak the language.
Cookie A. was a delight to knit for. She responded quickly to questions and was just the most down-to-earth lady ever. She's one of the knitting experts I'd love to meet, should I ever have the money to attend knitting camp.
I hope you don't mind if I post a few more pictures. It's not that I'm in love with myself, but I am in love with these socks!!! They are a PERFECT fit for my humongous size 8 feet!
