I've fallen hard for this lovely.
This one, by a super-duper knitter, is delightful.
As is this one.
The contenders for my affection are a skein of Socks That Rock mediumweight (380 yds), Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock (2 skeins 215 yds each) and in a distant third place, some very friendly New England Shetland (I think I have about 4 skeins, 196 yds each).
I'm not great at substituting and making it work.
Which would suit best? And what the heck needle size do I switch to? I know I'd need to check gauge and all, but what would you suggest?
