Updates with a FO
I don’t exactly remember when I finished these socks which I call Corn on the Cob. I think it was around Thanksgiving time, but I love how they turned out.
Yarn: Handmaiden Casbah (80% merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon) in dandelion
Pattern: Pablo Deep by Knitting Pixie–it’s free!
Mods: I split the repeats at the heel flap differently than the pattern; instead of 2 repeats for the instep I did 1/2 + 1 + 1/2. I also did an eye of partridge heel flap.
The dandelion looked great in all the stitch patterns, and the cashmere made it so wonderfully soft.
I like patterns where the cuff pattern feeds well into the leg pattern, and Pablo Deep does this really well.
It’s hard to take pictures of one’s own feet! But the socks fit really well.
In WIP news, the Guernsey Wrap is 5/6 done! Here it is on the couch-o-meter. Soon a FO!
I did get a little bored knitting this, so I took a little break to start a Celtic Cabled Neckwarmer by Lindsay Henricks (another free pattern) in some Malabrigo twist in grapes.
I had to knit some cables! This is a fun and easy cable project. And purple cables are the best.
