For my darling little sister: some socks in a local handpainted superwash wool. The pattern is V-Junkie from Alice Yu. I got tons of compliments on the yarn and pattern while I was knitting these.
Bonus feature: I always knit socks in my classes, and this was the PERFECT in-class knit. More interesting than stockinette, but easy enough to knit by feel.
Alice Yu is a sock hero. This may be my favorite pair I’ve ever knit… so far.
