Some Upstream Socks, and an Introduction

Hi! I'm new here - in real life I'm Denise, on Ravelry I'm deknits. I am just loving the "New Pathways..." book. I have made 4 pairs of baby socks from the learning patterns, for a friend who is having twins. My latest project is a pair of the Upstream architecture socks, in Sophie's Toes Sock Yarn in the "American Patchwork" colorway (kindly ignore the hairy legs of Fall):

This is the best-fitting sock I have ever made! I am so excited to finish the other one and be able to wear them. :)

Cedar Angels

Here's a pair of Cedar architecture socks – they're Sockapalooza angel socks for D which jumped in the mail today. D prefers bright anklets.

Fire on the Mountain socks

The yarn is Socks That Rock Mediumweight in the Fire on the Mountain colorway, a balanced rainbow of tertiary brights. I love how the subtle repeat flashes briefly at the ankle expansion, then settles down again. I think these may be the handsomest socks I've ever made. I bow to Cat Bordhi!

Spiraling Coriolis

Did a pair of Spiraling Coriolis. They went to SOAR in my place. Told my spinning teacher that she was not going to SOAR with nothing but store bought socks. They fit nicely, although the second sock does not have the same stretch due to the reverse spiral. If she can teach me to spin, I can teach her socks.

Little Sky

How easy and cute are the Little Sky socks! I used Encore worsted and size 6 circulars. I love the increase instep.
