I had the good fortune to be able to test knit for Jeannie Cartmel. The pattern is called Everything's Connected and you can purchase it through Ravelry.
I followed the small pattern, CO 60 sts.
Yarn: Nurturing Fibers Sock Wool, Lavender Fields
It was an amazing experience! I felt truly honoured to be chosen to test knit, especially after I discovered that I was the newbie knitter around- everybody else had knitted tons of socks already- my 4th pair so far.
The instructions are very detailed and clear.
I learnt two major things making these socks: how to make cables without a cable needle
and not to flap! Let me explain: After cast on i got in a flap, telling myself this is so complicated, are you good enough? And that sucked up all my energy, and it took me a whole week to make one single sock! As I knitted on though i discovered the rhythm of the pattern and it became really easy. And as I discovered that I was good enough to chose do a really beautiful pattern, I just got to be patient and attentive and knit- and not flapping around!
I honestly think this is the nicest thing I ever knitted!
(And am hoping to be able to do more test knits- they are tons of fun! )
