I've been wanting to knit the Twisted Flower pattern by Cookie A for years, and I've started on it at least three times before, but I never got further than half a sock until I got exhausted. Having knitted a few more or less complicated sock patterns recently, I figured I might be finally ready to knit a pair of Twisted Flower socks from start to finish, and I was right; the pattern just didn't feel as demanding as it did before.
For a pattern with such pressure to finally succeed, I decided the yarn had to be perfect. My recent experiences with Cephalopod Yarns Skinny Bugga! made me convinced it would be the ideal yarn base, and since Blue Lobster is possibly my favorite ever colorway of any yarn, I decided my dream socks deserved nothing less. This skein of Blue Lobster was slightly more variegated than the one I had earlier, but not too much so.
Knit with my current favorite needles, the DyakCraft Heavy Metals, Magic Looped, the knitting process was as pleasant as possible. I wish I could knit every project with these needles, but unfortunately they don't come any larger than 3.25 mm.
