The wool and the rowan pattern were bought on a shopping spree with the very great Abi at Liberties. I did not cast this on until April but my Pomatomus socks were started there.
The yarn that I used is 75% superwash wool & 25% Polyamid and is called "Prego" and I bought it because of the colour. Unfortunately it is fuzzy and now that I got some socks in Wollmeise yarn from my not-so-secret-secret pal spoiler I really regret that I haven't used better yarn for this complicated pattern.
The yarn from Rowan on the other hand is great. It is 50% wool and 50% cotton and was great to work with.
The pattern itself isn't complicated BUT somehow it just did not click for me. It is a very short repeat but somehow I had a hard time to figure out the pattern with the decreases and increases and I'm too stupid to chart lace!
You can find the making of here ,here and here ( the last pic also shows the WIP on my potomoatoumous socks. Cookie A. if you ever read this: the name is horrible to remember! )
