The Brethren Sock Pattern is UP!!!

For those of you who got the pattern for being an attendee of the retreat, I will be happy to gift you a copy through ravelry so you may have it in your library and have a digital version of it. Just send me a pm on Ravelry. Also, thanks to Joe (aka Olddancer) we've got our first bit of errata. Next to the instep chart instructions it says:

Juneberry Triange by Jared Flood

I FINALLY finished the edging on my Juneberry and blocked it yesterday afternoon. I used a worsted weight merino/baby alpaca/silk blend and size 5.5 mm needles. It's HUGE! It measures about 68" X 42". I think I blocked it a little too harshly, actually. The only modifications I made were to the edging. I didn't break the yarn at the end of the body and simply casted on for the edging using a backwards loop cast on. I also started with one less garter ridge to better match the established perpendicular garter stitches.
