Hello, I'm Trish, and I have knit my 'try out' baby socks, 2 each of the Little Sky and Little Coriolis patterns. I did one of each sock on DPNs and then one on magic loop single circular needle, so I think I understand the stitch management needed for both of those techniques. I haven't decide which adult sock I will do next--need to finish up some other things first. I am leaning toward the Rushing Rivulets socks on page 91 but the Bartholomew's Tantalizing socks posted here look interesting too.
My Little Sky socks were knit in Crystal Palace Bunny Hop, a microfiber/angora blend, and the Little Coriolis were knit in Berroco's Love It Colors which is a cotton/acrylic/polyester blend. I didn't realize the long color runs on the Love It would lead to such mis-matched mates, but there they are.
