Sock #4: CFE Sock Club

I finished the Crazy For Ewe (CFE) sock club socks, using the first yarn, which was the July yarn, I believe. (I haven't had it that long; I joined on one of my trips, later.) It is "Opal Fire" by the Great Adirondack Yarn Company, a custom-dyed yarn for the club.
The sock club also provided some wonderful patterns, but the one I wanted to make had a complicated chart, and I copped out and made an easy pattern. I used "Crosshatch Lace" from More Sensational Knitted Socks. It has a six-stitch, 8-row repeat that is easy to memorize. I don't think my results look quite like the pictures. I wonder if they knitted into the back of their yarn-overs. I knitted into the front of YO's. It makes the lace openings rather large. I like the socks, though!
Happy Knitting!

P.S. Here is the gorgeous yarn, in hank and ball.
