FO: Hedgerow Socks

I can't even BEGIN to express how much I love these socks!

Hedgerow socks - heels

and the obligatory leaning-over-bad-angle socks shot:

Hedgerow socks!

Pattern: Hedgerow Socks by Jane Cochran
(available through Knitter's Review, free!)
Yarn: Louet Gems Pearl in Citrus Orange, about 1.5 skeins
Yarn source: KPixie
Needle: 2.5mm 40" INOX Express

Time: about 2 weeks

Modifications: None

Notes: Trust this pattern on the heel. It will seem that what you are doing is absolutely crazy, and where do those two instep stitches go? But just do what it says and you'll have a beautiful sock. The pattern looks like cables or something hard, but it's really just a two-row offset repeat of ribbing. Very easy!

This yarn is my absolute most favorite sock yarn ever. It's gorgeous, springy, superwash wooly goodness that just glows with color. I love everything about it, including the yarn labels, which are the best-designed labels in the history of knitting.

Gush, gush. Fee and Grady say hi, but they are still hiding from the camera. I have lots of pictures of the sides of their heads, but nothing else.
