Kai-Mei was a joy to knit!
Despite slogging through 6.5″ of 3×3 ribbing, the pattern was fantastic. The creative gusset construction and addictive lace pattern really kept things moving.
The yarn may be my favorite sock yarn yet. It felt good to knit and it feels good on my feet. I’ll definitely be trying this one out again and will seek out yarns with a similar base.
I knit up the full pair on this one because it was the pattern for the May Sock Innovation knitalong. I can definitely see more Kai-Meis in my future. As others have mentioned on the ravelry forums, this would make a great gift sock.

In non-knitting news, I’ve restarted the flylady program.
