The pattern, The Portland Gussets, is a fairly recent one from Yarnissima, and probably one of her easiest ones. I like the clean lines, and the way the gusset increases are done. This was my first time knitting with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Solid (that became available for the first time at the LYS very recently). I have yet to see how it wears over time, but what I can say now that it's very soft, the colors are beautiful, and the yarn is slightly splitty. The leg of the socks turned out quite tight, for some reason, even though the stitch count and gauge are similar to many other socks I've knit. I noticed the same thing with KawKawEsque, and I wonder why it is. If I knit this pattern again, I'm going to use a larger needle for the leg only, because the foot part is not tight at all.
