After so much trouble getting to this pattern, I had to cast on at once. Thank you so much for your help, Pixie! I can't quite believe it myself, but they are done. Of course I had a slight advantage, since I had a finished toe sitting on my coffee table for a couple of weeks. That's also the reason why I did mine toe up. I've cast on with this yarn for three different socks, nothing worked out, but I think this stitch pattern is O.K. with this yarn. I didn't want to make a plain vanilla sock with it. I also made a cuff, just because I like my socks that way. They are still wet in this picture, that's why I didn't want to pull them on my feet for a picture yet. Here are some specs:
yarn: Lucy Neatby's Celestial merino sock yarn, colorway : Honeypot, 2-ply
needles: 2.5mm for the foot and 4 inches up the leg, than I switched to 2.75mm, but didn't have to, now they are a bit loose
size: large, my feet are 10.25 inches long
I made 11 cable twists on the leg, plus the cuff, which makes them 7 inches long. I didn't have too much yarn left over either.
Unfortunately I don't have a long life expectancy for these socks, because of all the frayed places, throughout the skein. It must have been a faulty yarn, that's too bad, because I like how they look all knit up.
I first got attracted to this sock club, when I saw the May 2007 socks pop up on other blogs. I sincerely hope this will be one of the patterns, Anni is planning on making available this month. That would be awesome! :o)
Thank you, Anni, and happy Anniversary!
