Pattern: Checkerboard Gansey Socks by Lisa Kay
Yarn: Anzula Cloud in the Dusty Rose Colorway
Needles: Size 2 DPNs
You know, I don't want to say anything bad about this pattern, because it's really fine, but it really does confirm that I prefer top down socks to toe up socks. I don't like the cast on, and I don't like the heel, and I never feel like they look quite as good as "regular" socks.
And this yarn - good lord! - I clearly hit a fault in the skein because I had four separate breaks in sock number one. Never had that happen in the shawl I used the bulk of this yarn for, and sock number two was fine- but man was sock number one a pain!
