Elise asked me for a pair of socks. I've only made her one pair, and that was a really long time ago, so i decided to make her some nice, complicated socks. I'm using my last skein of Little Dipper yarns, and chose Cookie A's Vilai pattern.
I love the way it looks, but I am questioning whether knitting such complicated socks makes any sense. It's so slow, and there are so many lovely socks out there with an easy to remember repeat.
And yet these really are special, and I think I'll give them to Elise for her 40th birthday, so I guess I'm leaning gently towards the concept that they are worth the effort.
I also have it in my head that I would really like to knit all the patterns from Sock Innovation. Cookie A has disappeared, so there won't be any new patterns from her, and it seems fitting to knit all her back catalogue, before I get sad about there being no new patterns.
