Nothing Turbulant about these

Yesterday I finished my fourth pair of Cookie A sock Club sock, Turbulence. I think they are quite pretty and the design was perfect. Something happening all the time, but not so I have to stare at the chart for every stitch. (Yes,. Wayward  I'm talking about you) The Jitterbug ended up having ample- I have x grams left, and there is definitely something to be said for not being a left with half a ball of sock yarn.
But the biggest surprise about these was, when I put them on for the first time, they are extra comfortable. I don't know if it's the way the pattern clings like ribbing but is smooth like stocking stitch, I don't know if it's the yarn, but I do know they are something special.
The only thing I wish I had thought to do was to make anatomically correct toes. The pattern is mirrored, and next time I knit a Cookie A pattern which is different for both socks I'm going to make the toes match my feet. Basically though, this is another Cookie A triumph of a great design, paired with her trademark clear pattern writing style. Now what should I knit while I wait for the 9th of June, when the next club patterns are due for release?
