Pattern: Eunice Socks from Cookie A's Sock Innovation
Yarn: Malabrigo sock in the abril colorway
Needles: Size 2 DPNs
My Eunice socks are done! I really enjoyed this pattern, though I'd tweak a few things if I make it again. I'd add at least one more pattern repeat on the leg, and I'm pretty sure I could fit another pattern repeat on the foot before starting the ribbing. Still, these were a great experience. The cables are definitely a little different, but not super hard.
The yarn was a dream to work with. It's just so soft, and such a nice texture to work with. I'm definitely going to have to find something to do with my poor damaged skein of solis. As it is, I have a decent amount of this skein left, and am plotting what to do with the leftovers.
I next have to finish my second Kiila sock. I really enjoyed the first of those socks, but they lost out to the lure of the Malabrigo the second time around. With that out of the way, I'll now be happy to focus on Kiila.
