Entrelac Sock Started

Yesterday, I started knitting Eunny Jang's Entrelac Socks from the Spring 2007 Interweave Knits. This pic shows the progress I made yesterday and last night. I fucked up the cast on, but this was my 3rd attempt at it so I said fuck it and kept the misshapen toe. I LOVE knitting entrelac, and I LOVE knitting socks, and this pattern is BOTH. I'm in love :D

I am using Knitpicks Gloss sock yarn in the colors Burgundy and Serengeti. This is my first time using Gloss, and it's wonderful. It's soft, the colors are radiant, and the silk content gives it a slight sheen. This really is a beautiful sock yarn.

Ever since I saw the Pomotamus pattern on Knitty, I have been a fan of it's designer, Cookie A (Cookie also designed the Hedera, Baudelaire & Monkey socks). She is a brilliant designer, her patterns are drop dead GORGEOUS. I have recently fallen head over heels in love with some of her patterns, and I must share. Here are just a few of her socks that I love: Flicker, Millicent, Gothic Spire, Thelonious, Twisted Flower, Rhiannon, and German Stocking. If anyone sees these patterns for sale online, let me know. I MUST buy these.
