The Tiberius pattern from the Cookie A Sock Club was a joy to knit. My pair is not from the club yarn, but Wollmeise Pure in the colorway Petit Poison Nr.5 light. I oscillate between wanting to knit socks in 100 % merino, or a merino/cashmere/nylon blend. I have a tendency to knit my socks slightly too small, probably at least in part due to my very tight gauge (I've bent solid stainless steel needles by just knitting with them), and I'm starting to learn that 2.5 mm is probably a better fit than 2.25 mm when it comes to needle size with socks knit from fingering weight yarn. These socks turned out exactly the size they were supposed to. I would gladly keep them myself, but they will be gifted.
