Uptown Boot Socks

Pattern: Uptown Boot Socks by Jennifer Appleby
Yarn: Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in Blacklight
Needle: US2 Addi Turbo
Notes: These socks were in the first issue of Interweave Knits I ever bought, Winter 2003. They have been on my mental knitting list for all these years. I finally started them in February then stalled. It took me seven months to knit the first sock and a week to knit the second. It's a very easy pattern but I had lots of trouble counting my rows in this dark yarn and was forced to wear reading glasses when knitting them at night.
