Harlot Socks

I couldn't be more excited that the Yarn Harlot is coming to town! Especially since I missed her last time. : ( I finally got a copy of her Knitting Rules, and I want to try her basic sock recipe. I need some easy socks for when I need a little mindless, therapuetic knitting. I always covet those basic socks in fabulous yarns on her blog. So my questions for you all are: Have you used her sock recipe? Will you post pictures and comments? Does anyone want to do a Harlot KAL leading up to April 10? Thanks! (And thanks to Sarah W for nudging me to post this!)

I'd be interested in the Harlot KAL - I need a good excuse to try a new pattern.

Hey, I'm already sorta doing that right now. I'm using self-striping yarn and the Harlot's sock recipe. I just turned my first heel without a pattern and it felt freeing. I'll try to post pics soon.

I'm glad there are others interested in this! I finished my first Harlot sock this weekend, using Austermann Step yarn that I bought with an SITC coupon. It went super fast, and I love the simplicity of the pattern with the big bold stripes. I think I could have the pattern memorized pretty easily, which would be great. Socks are such nice portable projects, but having to bring along a pattern takes a little away from that.
I'll get a picture up as soon as I can. Sarah said if I don't, she'll have to force a photo session next time I'm at the Yarnery, so you'll see them one way or another!
