  • I finally finished last month’s socks,


    So cute! I love the colors!

    I like the stitch pattern in the leg. Is that a mock cable?

    Thanks! @Pegg Thomas yes, a mock cable. I like to use a k3, P2 rib. Sl1, K2, PSSO two knit sts. Then next row K1, YO, K1 to add the stitch back in.

    Finished up a pair last night. I’ll be gifting these to one of my sisters who loves the color sapphire blue.


    Wow! Those are really pretty.


    Wow! Those are really pretty.

    Is this self striping yarn or did you do it? I love the way it turned out.

    Finished through the heels.


    That is really pretty yarn.

    Love all that texturing.

    They are helical knit, no self striping. The sapphire blue is used throughout and I alternated the light blue and the speckled every 20 rounds. I wish I had pre-planned for the afterthought heel placement so that it was more centered in the stripe, but oh well.

    I really like that colorway and how it’s working out with that pattern. Beautiful.

    These are awesome.

    I think what you did is great.

    Finished pair!


    One for theme.



    The colors are perfect and I really-really like that textured stitch. You may need to share. :slight_smile:
