Down Under Socks

I don't have too many words this week, but I wanted to show you a pair of socks knitted from the toastiest sock yarn my feet have ever felt.
Cherries1
They are so cozy!
Cherries2
Pattern: Cable Twist Socks from Hello Yarn.
Yarn: Cherries sock yarn from The Knittery, sent to me by the lovely Jaqueline
Needles: US 1 bamboo
I loved knitting these, the yarn is so soft and the pattern was easy to remember, though I did get a case of pattern envy after seeing isel's pomatomus socks knit in the same yarn and color. They are gorgeous!
Soon I'll have a finished Flicca to show you, all that's left to do is the collar and frontbands (and I'll be adding buttons!).

socks, baking, what else could I want! Very Productive! I dig it!

Julia said...

Sorry this comment isn't related to your *beautiful* socks, but I'm wondering if you have a chart for the Mata Hari pattern? Or is there a certain number of stitches I should cast on that's divisible by eight or anything? I've started the Mata Hari's but can't fit the yo, k2tog spaced every 8 stitches in for some reason. Does the k2tog count as one stitch in the eight? Sorry for all the questions!

Irma said...
