Pattern: Flicker Socks by Cookie A
Yarn: Knitpicks Risata in the Fairy Tale colorway
Needles: Size 1.5 DPNs
I'd gotten this pattern in a swap a while ago, and I'd also been holding onto this yarn for a while (quite a while - it's discontinued), so they seemed a like a natural fit for a quick project.
This is probably a mid-level Cookie A project - pretty straightforward, but not super easy either. There's barely any twisted stitches, which I found rather amusing.
It is a bit of a shame this yarn is discontinued. It has a touch of cotton in it, which makes it a little lighter wearing than full wool socks. I have another pair I knit a couple of years ago, and I find I can wear those to work fair more often than my regular wool socks, because they're not quite so warm. (Well, in a normal winter at least. I've been rocking the full wool socks frequently this year.)
