Triple C Socks

Why Triple C?? Well, Cashmere, Cotton, and wayyy Comfy Socks!

They were supposed to be my SAM 6 August socks, but well, you know, other things kinda got in the way.

Triple C Socks
RYC Cashcotton DK in Magenta, 142 yds. Yes only 1 ball used.
US 4 KP circular Magic loop

Done toe up with 40 stitches until after the heel turn. Since I needed to add a few stitches to prevent holes after the heel, I kept them and finished with 42 stitches. Knit a 1 x 1 rib for 10 rows then sewn cast/bind off. Did I need to stay at 42 stitches. Nope, a bit loose, but they'll work.

Triple C Socks
It's magenta, but shows up more pinky here.

All that's left All that was left....dont'cha love that. I have 2 more balls of this in different shades of green and will definately use them for ankle socks. This yarn is so soft and a bit stretchy too, more than one would think from a cotton blend. Well it says it's 35% cotton, 25% polyamide, 18% angora (heh, at first I thought the cat had been near it), 13% viscose, and only 9% cashmere...hmmm I only just noticed that now. Oh well, who cares, they are soft and comfy and I likey!

Monday is going to be a tough day! Please send any good vibes my way round 9 am! Thanks!

Close call! That's about how much yarn I had left after finishing my mother's Clapotis. It's great when it works out, but it gets so nerve-wrecking towards the end. I hope I'm as lucky. The ball attached to my sister's sock looks suspiciously small.

The color is gorgeous! If I didn't work in a conservative environment, I'd dye my hair magenta.

If it did have cat hair, they'd be Quadruple C socks! ;) Very nice!

Will send all the good vibes your way tomorrow morning!

Thinking of you right now dear, and sending tons of good vibes! And I know, I've been terrible about e-mailing lately. I will certainly set aside a chunk of time today to write.

Oh, it's past nine. Can I send good vibes back in time? *grunt* There. Did it. I hope it worked.

The socks are super-duper fab, and they look cozy as hell.
