Inspired by a Cookie A. KAL on Ravelry, I decided to knit this pair of socks for my BFF to replace the failure that was the pair in the previous post. How convinient: BFF for the BFF! Pastel colors aren't usually my thing, but I got an urge to knit something with lavender colored yarn, and I think the pattern and yarn make a good couple here. It was a pleasant knit, with Kirjo-Pirkka (again) and 2.25 mm DPNs. The socks are also nice and stretchy and therefore forgiving with gauge irregularities. I think my gauge was a bit tighter than in the pattern, and having expected that, I chose size medium instead of small, and it turned out fine.
