Love Your Library - My pick for June

I have the three volumes of The Knitter's Curiosity Cabinet by Hunter Hammersen.  I like these patterns very much.  I don't know why I haven't just gone straight through each book and knit everything in sight.  The designs are inspired by vintage illustrations.  Volume 1 is botanical, volume 2 is butterflies, and volume 3 is marine.  Each inspiration is applied to a sock and another non-sock piece (hat, mitts, shawl, etc.). 

My choice is a pair of socks inspired by a shell called Limneus Stagnalis.  It has pretty textured cables.  It's knit in sport weight which should mean a fairly quick knit.
