Celtic Cables



To pretty a cable pattern to have just at the back, started toe up, ribbed the toe and let the cables flow up the leg.
Foot done on size 2.25, then switched to 2.75 for the leg
Worked over 72sts
Yarn from Anni, gorgeous Merino.
Thanks for another great pattern.

Your socks are fabulous. The color reminds me of berry ice cream. I think if they were mine I would wear them 24/7. Love your cabling up the front too!

How clever to do the cables on the front also, and ambitious. LOL

Thought having the cable up the front would look wonderful, & it does. Well done.

Only problem now is what shoes/sandals to wear with such wondrous socks. Ideas?

Debi said...

No problem with shoes, my LYS carries clear rubber clogs and clear rubber boots...too kool,eh?

Bronchitkat said...

Goes green with envy. Then remembers that rubber clogs/boots + hot weather is not nice.

Enjoy!
