Finished: Roza's socks

Pattern: Roza's socks from Interweave Knits Spring 2007

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Poppy

Needles: bamboo 1s

Comments: A very nice pattern. It calls for size 0 needles, but I like to knit socks a little tight, and I needed size 1 to get the gauge. The color is nice - apparently the yarn is hand-painted and has small color variations. This particular shade, called poppy, is... yummy! Other than the color, though, I don't think I'm particularly impressed with the yarn; it knits well, but it's very thin, almost too thin for size 1s.

The pattern itself is well-written and the brioche stitch is very addictive!
