I finally got my book last week (after drooling over it at every yarn shop I happened on) and cast on for Priscilla's Dream Socks yesterday. They are going SO FAST in midweight Socks that Rock yarn (in Scottish Highlands). This is my first time using DPNs--I'm using the Lantern Moon Socks Stix, and at first I was hating how slow they were compared to my addis, but now I really love how they feel in my hands.
I tend to wear out the heel of my socks, so I decided to do a heel flap instead...so I guess these were more "inspired" by her design than a literal following, since I also cast on a different number of stitches. I loved the look of the ribbed leg and stockinette instep, though...it's funny that I would never have thought to knit that, since most of my regular store-bought socks are exactly that design!
