i finished my blue baudelaires. the fit is really nice.
sockotta is one of my favorite summer socken yarns. it knits like cotton, so it's not about the knitting experience. i like the crisp stitch definition, and the hardly noticeable tonality of the yarn. and, the price point is very nice too (cheap!).
it can be a challenge finding the right pattern for sockotta. the yarn has no stretch, so you have to find a pattern that will provide that for you. the baudelaire pattern is semi-ribbed (there are 3 purl stitches on either side of the cables, and two purl stitches down the center of the lace panels).
i did enjoy knitting these. and i love the results. i will have to resist knitting another pair with a different yarn. there are so many socks in my queue right now there's no time for repeats.
