While taking Cat Bordhi's seminar on socks at this year's Stitches West, Kris and I fell in love with her Spring Thaw sock. We were able to locate the Knitter's Magazine the pattern is in at one of the vendor booths (Yarn Barn, I'm pretty sure), and I picked up some sock yarn at Miss Bab's to get started.
Two months later, I have one sock done!
The sock is beautiful. The twisted rib is a pain-in-the-arse. But, did I say the sock is beautiful? It is. And it's well worth it.
I still need to cast-on for the second sock. Since it's toe-up and magic loop (something I've only done once, you see), I need to find some quiet time where I'm not utterly exhausted to get it started - like not at night after Jake goes to bed. Hopefully I'll find the time soon, because I would really like to get going on the second!
