These socks begun just before MSW are now complete! Yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in colorway Buck's Bar, and the pattern is Roundabout Socks by Ruth Greenwald at The Yarnarian. I found it via Ravelry, of course. I finished the first sock in July, but I am a “first sock - first sock - second sock - second sock” knitter, so I had to finish the second Long Tall Sally first and didn't start the second one of these until November. I also seem to be making booties for lots of babies. With this pair finished, I realize they are shorter than I usually knit my socks, so there may be booties from this, and/or a kid pair – or mittens. Even though the yarn-overs create a little lace effect, I'll be wearing these for warmth this winter.
