Victory...Sweet Victory!

Beautiful socks.



Start: June 13, 2005
Finish: June 17, 2005
Pattern: "Cable Rib Socks" from Interweave Knits spring 2005
Yarn: Meilenweit Lana Grossa colour#1284 80% wool 20% nylon
Adjustments: The only thing I did was shorten the leg...I can't stand socks too high. I left out two cables.

Love these socks...love them. I will make another pair in another colour. I also think that I will make them a touch longer in the toe next time...I seem to have long toes so the 2" for the toes isn't enough...another 1/8" would be perfect.

Whoa. You finished a PAIR of socks in four days. FOUR (4) days? Do you have an extra pair of hands that we don't know about?
