Lace and Cable Socks

Lace and Cable SocksLace and Cable Socks

I’m no longer stuck with just one!

Pattern: Lace and Cable Socks from Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson

Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca (fine maybe? Not sure…)

Needles: US2

Notes: Didn’t think to mirror the pattern until I saw the finished photos. Damn. Used the Russian bind off (modified).

I should start buying less boring colors for my socks…might as well make them as obnoxious as possible since they never see the light of day, right?

So even though these socks took me almost a year to finish, are in the most boring color, and have a not-so-great pattern, they are my most comfortable and best-fitting pair.

YAY, SO glad to be finished!!!

    yeah, i often use socks as an excuse to knit in obnoxious colors that i secretly love but can’t actually wear with dignity. i made some hot pink ones last year, and i have some bright turquoise yarn on deck for a new pair. thanks so much for the bag– i just blogged about it this afternoon!

    I have that book too! We seem to have similar taste in knitting books 🙂 Those socks look lovely in your version as well as the book – I’ll really have to give them a go.
