I Love Gansey Socks

Name of Project: I Love Gansey Socks from the Six Sox Knitalong
Yarn: Knit Picks Bare Fingering Weight hand-dyed with Cherry Kool-aid, 462 yard/100 gram hank
Yardage: about half of the hank
Yarn Source: Knit Picks
Needles: Size US 1 (2.5 mm) Knit Picks dpns
Estimated Time to Complete Project: 1 month
Modifications: Started them toe-up, did not carry the hearts up the heel flap and finished them off with an I-cord bind-off.

I made my own chart for these using an excel spreadsheet. I think making the Twisted Flower socks really helped me see how cables flow and made it easy for me to adapt the pattern. They turned out really pretty and remind me of Valentine's Day.
