Dowager's Prize Diamonds - in pink

Chath has test knit for me several times. She's a talented and knowledgeable knitter who has shared some of that knowledge with me over the past several months. I've also gotten to know her better and she's a wonderful lady.

She also knit a fantastic pair of  Dowager's Prize Diamonds (Ravelry project link):

Chath used Praefatio Yarns MCN fingering (available on Etsy) in Rhododendron for her size medium sock. The medium size, which isn't officially documented, is knit by casting on 72 sts as for the large, but using a 2.25mm needle instead of a 2.5mm needle. The cables and twisted stitches also pull in the fabric a bit, giving it just enough grip to ensure a good fit. She ended up using approximately 184 yd per sock for a total 367 yards used for the pair.
