Monique, my sister-in-law, will love these socks. She loves these colors and I think that the pattern will be perfect for her.
Pattern: New Year's Day by Dipsey Doodle
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM colorway #453
Needles: 5 US2 bamboo dpns
Mods: eye of partridge heel, short-row toe, cable directions alternate for each leg.
I love this pattern and look forward to using it again. In fact, I'm currently attempting it in a toe-up version on a circular needle. Pretty so far!
