Pattern: Roza’s Socks by Grumperina, IK Spring 2007
Yarn: Brooklyn Handspun Signature, Minty Subtle Solid, 1 skein
Needles: Lantern Moon Sox Stix ebony dpns, 2.25 mm
Loved knitting this pattern. It has a nice balance of both interest and ease on the needles. Although I started knitting these socks in March, I knit the entire second sock this past week. I definitely consider them my Project Spectrum socks! Besides being one of the softest pairs of socks I own (something about that Signature yarn, it’s seriously soft knit up) I also really love the way they look – horizontal texture and vertical elegance.

I love the socks! I have some sage-ish sock yarn I was considering for this pattern and thought I was being original… no. I forgot about seeing your first Roza in process! Those socks are fantastic…and just in time for spring!

Lovely socks. I found your blog and included a link to The Daily Purl in the Spring Knitting Issue of my online magazine, WebPearls.In reading yours and some other of the knitting blogs, I’m excited about learning to knit. Your interest and enthusiasm are contagious. I’m sure I’ll check back for ideas and inspiration.

What a beautiful pair of socks! I also knit a pair of these last week, and I can agree with you on the pattern. It is very nicely balanced.
