I tried!

Over a week ago I didn't think I'd be able to even start the Serpentine Socks pattern for July. July was a full of deadlines, I had to finish my Sockapalooza socks and I had to knit the sample for the August yarn4socks sock club. I thought that I would just finish up the what I had on the needles and start the August Sockamania pattern along with everyone else. But then I talked a bit with another member of the KAL and I just thought that I'd give it a try and start at one sock. At least that way I would have participated. So I cast on and this is what I have so far:

Serpentine Socks

I'm using some Louet Gems sock yarn. The contrasting color is Pink Panther and the other one is some I dyed myself with one of the Louet sock yarn dyeing kits. I decided to use a contrasting color for the toe, heel and cuff so that I could maybe use only one skein of the hand-dyed.

On the leg I'll be doing the cabling and ribbing only on the front, the back will be only stockinette as it is quite a bit of work all these little cables! But I do love the look of them, so I'm not complaining!: )

I'm making these socks for my mom, it will be the first pair I make for her. I hope she likes them!

Wow, the socks are looking fabolous. Post a pic when they're done even if you've missed he deadline for the draw.

Love the colores you choose. The knitted fabric looks wonderful.

Your socks look great! I love the subtle color changes - it doesn't overwhelm the stitch pattern at all. Super!!


I'm so jealous!! I only managed to get about 4 rounds on the toes done this month (sigh). I'll be starting up again with August's pattern.
