What can I say? This is pure sock joy. They aren't fancy. But they are FAST and cushy and warm and fit wonderfully. Absolute joy.
And finally, I wrote very explicit instructions down so I can share the pattern for my basic sock. It is a variation of Queen Kahuna and the Widdershin sock
Yarn: Malabrigo worsted weight. I don't remember the color, sorry. Doesn't photograph that well, but it is a gorgeous kettle-dyed eggplant.
Needles: Knitpicks options, Size 6.
Pattern: K2Karen's Basic Magic Loop, Toe-Up Sock using 36 stitches.
Started: Yesterday at 4pm. Finished: Today at 1pm. And I also did real work. This sock is fast.
