July Serpentine Socks DONE!


Hi there, I'm a new member and after I've imposed a sock knitting ban on myself for some time, I was sock knitting starved!
After knitting this Cardigan I swore to myself I would not knit anything with cables or even use the word "cable" for a few month! As luck would have it, the first pattern for me was of course a cable sock! I like the look of cables, but hate to knit them. That's why the leg part's an inch or so shorter than my usual socks. I'll be posting more about it on my blog later on. I've used toe up and a heel with gusset, which was new to me.
This is a very lovely sock pattern, thank you Anni!

Totally off subject, but I've just been over to your blog and seen your beautiful dogs. They're gorgeous! We've got a white GSD (Lexi) from a rescue who's been with us about a year since our 8 year old (Duke) died. We've also got a black and tan (Buster) who's 11 and now wants go-faster-stripes on his wheels! (he needs a doggie cart to get around)

Wow, that was quick and your yarn suits the pattern much better than the yarn colour I chose. They look fantastic. And i'm glad we got you to do cables.

Good grief! You must be a fire hazard with all those sparks flying off your needles!

Seriously, well done! What a lovely job. :)
