Cooper

The yarn is called Poison Apple and is a hand dye from Gothic Yarns on Ebay. (UK based)
I used my own Andersson Method as usual.
One sock is tighter and shorter than the other - the one on the left. This is because one of Knit Picks / Knit Pro 2mm needles is smaller than 2mm!

Beautiful socks! And the other pic's not half bad, either.

I suppose the answer to the needle thing is to find the kind and buy several of each size before they decide to change them....

Have you tried Carusoe on Knitty.com? I really like the way the pattern breaks up the colors. I've made a couple pair using that pattern and have been pleased.

Doug knits sometimes, but not as often as he used to. I think it has something to do with getting Fallout-3, har har.
