Notes

These were a joy to knit from start to finish. Don’t ever let anybody tell you you don’t deserve a little cashmere in your sock yarn. They feel fabulous!

And I loved the pattern a LOT. I’ll knit it again with a semisolid colorway to really make the pattern pop. I don’t have a lot of yarn left after knitting the second sock, but that’s okay -- more cashmere on my feet.
