Another sock

Another sock - because I'm just that exciting. I know, I know, how many more socks am I going to show you? (It could be worse, right? I could do nothing but take photos of the cat!)

One down, one to go. Finally, a toe-up construction that doesn't drive me crazy! No waste yarn, no short-row heel, just a very well-fitting sock. The heel and toe are arguably a little fiddly, being written for circular needles, but I can persevere. These are called Seaweed Socks [warning: PDF] by Wendy Johnson of WendyKnits. The yarn is Koigu (yum!).

And here's a close-up, because I can.

I think it's time to start the second one... and maybe scheme about some argyle socks.

LOVE THEM!!!!! Just yesterday I looked up cabled sock patterns on ravelry, but I didn't see this one. I wish I had some magic harry potter knitting needles that I could program to work on their own.

Oh... I guess that's because they aren't really cables, just look-alikes. So sneaky.
