These are souvenir socks from the Sock Summit 2011 in Portland. They incorporate all the nifty things that I learned at SS, like the Bosnian Square Toe (which is used as a diamond shape) and the arch shaped sole. I knit the socks on the Addi circular lace needle that I bought at the SS marketplace, where I bought one ball of the lovely coral coloured Classic Elite Summer Sox yarn. Then I had a harrowing search for another ball of the same yarn, once I got home, so that I could actually make Alice a pair of socks. Luckily Jurgen from the Needle & Arts Centre in nearby Campbell River had exactly the same yarn, even the same dye lot number.
The pattern is available on Ravelry as a pdf download and can be purchased for $2.00 CAD.
