Terry has been wanting to knit these beautiful socks by Cookie A for sometime now and she has cast them on in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, Jeans. She tells me that she is having a lot of fun with this one and loves the way the twisted stitches create a raised texture. The pattern requires about 400 yards of fingering weight yarn and Terry says they are good for an advanced beginner and certainly a perfect for an intermediate knitter. This pattern is a free one and you can find it here on Knitty http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTpomatomus.html
