These are my Kai-Mei socks, from Cookie A's book, Sock Innovation. This is the third pattern that I've knit from this book...that's how good it is!

I used Socks That Rock, a gift from a fellow KH'er and a dear friend. The color is Jade. The yarn is FABULOUS! It knits up a lot thicker than one might think.

I knit seven panel repeats (across the foot). I've read that a lot of people do eight or nine, but because the yarn was so thick, I cut that number down. I used size 0 needles and 115 grams of the yarn.

A special thanks to my daughter, who braved 90+ heat and humidity to take these pictures while I posed.

Thanks for looking!!

Hi all! Thanks for the kind words. They are music to my soul! :heart:

This pattern was surprisingly easy...especially compared to some of the cabled socks I've made.

In fact, once I got to the foot, these socks FLEW off my needles. Seriously. That's how easy they were. I didn't even find the ribbing toilsome. These were some of the easiest and definitely the fastest socks I've ever knit.

Go for it!!!
