FO: Clover Socks

I finished a pair of socks. Well, not just a pair of socks, but the most favorite socks I have ever ever knitted for myself.

Pattern: Clover from the Inside Loop, by Kate Blackburn
Yarn: Regia Silk (I've expressed my love for it recently)
Needles: 2.5mm addi turbos

I knit these socks two at a time, top down. Except for the heel. I wasn't clever enough to do both heels at the same time, so I separated them and knit them separately. I might just be a convert to two at a time socks. It's fantastic to finish both socks at the same time. Love it. Not in love with top down, though. I continue to prefer toe up socks for the ease of it all. The only small mod to the pattern was a shallower heel - I did 11 repeats of the heel flap instead of 15.

I also really like this pattern, but I'm a sucker for simple cable and lace column socks. I adored Hedera (which, incidentally, were also knit in Regia Silk, but for my mom) and Pembrokeshire Pathways. Pembrokeshire Pathways gets a lot of wear from me. That Koigu is holding up pretty well.

Enough jabbering on, let's have photos!

I should be doing my Latin homework right now, instead of posting this. Yep! Learning Latin with my pal Larissa. Who already learned it once and is way ahead of me. I need to go puzzle over the first declension now.

Those are lovely! I may have to go ahead and queue those up. Yep, all queued.

It's funny, I have totally different opinions/modifications to my socks - I love cuff-down; I love dpns; I always have to lengthen heel flaps.
