These are my blackrose socks in sanguine gryphon Bugga. If you haven’t yet used this yarn, I highly suggest it! The 10% cashmere gives it a soft and almost lotiony feel, and it is nice and thick.
These socks have me convinced that my preference is a short row heel. I like the way the short rows create a pocket for my heel and then the foot of the sock hugs my arch. Very comfortable.
The pattern doesn’t quite meet “monkey sock” criteria, but it is close. They are a very quick feeling knit.
