This is my first attempt at an adult sized sock. The pattern is the 'Lacy Mock Cable Sock' from Island of Misfit Patterns site.
The yarn used was Patons Kroy sock yarn in Winter Eclipse and needles were size 3 and made of metal. I found the metal needles much harder on my hands than bamboo and from now on only plan on using bamboo needles for sockwork.
Now I just have to get around to knitting the twin (I have already started knitting up some fabulous Fleece Artist sock wool into another pair of socks, oh my! )
