OK, so I'm in love with Cookie A.'s sock patterns in Knitty, so when I heard she was selling more beautiful patterns at Stitches West, it was just one more reason I had to go... it was my first Stitches, and it was so fun! I bought the kit for the Thelonius socks, and finally, about a week ago (I'm slow with the taking pictures thing) I finished! It was a pretty hard pattern (but well written!), and I had a few gauge issues, which ended in me knitting the small (me in small socks means there's something wrong in the universe... I have big feet!). I probably should have gone down a needle size so I could knit a larger size socks, since the feet look a little wonky, but c'est la vie. I love them anyway.

The awesomeness that is the legs:

The ever-so-slightly wonky feet:

Wow, they're lovely.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Wow!  I love these!  If I was going to put down $ for a pattern, I believe this would be it.  Just gorgeous!

You did great adjusting between off needle sizes and sizes and I love the color you picked too.

What made the pattern hard?  The particular stitches it used, or just keeping track?

Thanks guys!

Gaucamolegreetings, the pattern was hard because it was a non-repeating motif, so I had to work the entire cuff, heel, and half of the foot with my chart close at hand. Keeping track of what row I was on, etc. is never very hard for me, but if you do have trouble with that kind of thing knit these with a pen in hand to mark what you've done. The stitches used are themselves pretty easy, though... and so, so pretty!  Smiley
