I started these on 4/17/07 and finished them on 4/29/07. I knitted another pair of socks between the first and the second sock of this pair. The pattern source is Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush - I love this book! The yarn is a "vacation purchase". I purchased this in Idaho falls at the Yarn Connection when we were visiting the In-Laws last Thanksgiving. I also bought yarn for a hat and scarf to match, though those skeins are from two different companies. I don't usually do pink, but the ensemble is going to be quite nice. This yarn is Wildfoote in the color Sonatina. The pattern was easy to remember, and the instructions were thorough and easy to follow. I wear a size 7 shoe, and there was very little yarn left over.
