Are you ready to SOCK THIS WAY!

My Sockapalooza socks are done!


1. Holly Spring Homespun Superwash Merino in Autumn Scape, which I knitted at 6 stitches/inch. This yarn is very soft and a very high quality. I made my Claptotis out of this in a different colorway. I was very worried that I would not have enough yarn but I have a small wad left.

2. The pattern is a combination of two patterns. I used the basic sock pattern always use from Ann Budd's The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns. I mixed that with the Cable Rib Socks in IK 2005. They have 3/1 rib and a cable on either side, but the gauge was 8 st/inch which would never work with my yarn.

3. I love the colors (and I hope my sockpal does too) but the lovely varigation really obscures the cable work. Still, I wanted to give her something besides a basic ribbed sock. So at least I know the cables are there. Plus, cables are fun!

4. I have loved all the yarn/projects I have made with Holly Spring Homespun yarn. I will most likely make another pair of socks from this yarn--its fabulous. My BIL loved them and wanted a pair.

The ship-off date is September 15 and I have some stitch markers and a postcard to tuck into the package, maybe something else cute if I can think of it. I wonder what kind of socks I will get?I love surprises!

These socks are great! I love the vivid colour (I really have to check out the yarn you are talking about) and the idea to have the little cables as an extra to a otherwise rather plain sock. I would love them and your sock pal surely will, too.

What a beautiful Autumnal colorway. I too will have to keep a lookout for that yarn. And, a beautiful picture -- nicely done.

No new posting? ;-) I was waiting a little while, since this doesn't fit to your socks. However, thanks for your nice comment over at my place.
I was watching 'Lost' last night again, and now I know what you mean. Sooo scary! Thanks for your shameless DVD recommendation. I will be on look-out for this one.
