Granada is the second sock from Janel Laidman's "Illuminations" sock club. Knit with jwrayco's Scottish collection yarn in "Flowers on the Beach" and "Lerwick Harbour". I knit the first sock on dps and it was too small re-knit on one size larger needles to get a good fit. Knit the second sock with two circs and liked the way it looked much better - so ripped sock one out one more time and re-knit with the circs - much better. I had the pattern down pat by the time I was finished!

This is Cookie A's "Stricken" for the Ravelry KAL. Knit with Hazelknits Artisan Sock in "Cotton Candy" with 2.25mm dps. It's a slow knit with all the ktbl and cables but is my favorite in the book so far. This yarn has wonderful stitch definition and I will be sure to use it again.
