Pumpkin Mystery

****** THROUGH THE LOOPS MYSTERY SOCK 09 SPOILER ALERT********


Don't look if you like the Mystery and haven't finished yet :)
















I really love this pattern! I can't believe I knit them as fast as I did. Yes, it did take the whole month, but getting parts of 2 socks knit mostly each week helped a lot.

The slouchy effect ;)

I love how the patterning goes down the side of the heel.


Toe Pic!

I wanted you to see it up close and personal ;) The decreases are done from the center and so cool! The darker color you see in this toe, looks kind of red from here, but it is really pumpkiny!!


Back Pic!
Back side
I think I really am going to like this ribbing. I may have to use it on another pair.

Strike a pose!
The pose
I asked my darling model to pose the way I like it, she went immediately to this one. Got her trained right huh...well you know, only for this...now if I can get her to clean her room...

Beautiful! And now, between you and Jody, I know for sure I screwed the pooch on this pattern. There I go not reading again. *sigh*

Love that color! This is, what, three or four pairs of them I've seen lately? Dammit, I may have to actually KNIT some socks!

Very nice! I hope your model doesn't get to keep the socks, though ;)

Jo said...

Gorgeous! I think I need some orange socks...

I love them! I'm a bit jealous of your color. I'm knitting them too in a very dark brown tweed and your color shows off the pattern much better.

Stacey said...

Those are really cute! And I too, love the color. I've been amassing orange yarn in my stash, mebbe it's time to knit it up, eh?

Those are so cute!! LOVE the color!

When is the next mystery sock? Maybe I'd actually FINISH a pair if did it in small doese!

Marissa said...

Love yours! Are you keeping them? I finished one pair, and am forcing myself to continue the &^&%^ Noro pair.
I swear at them while knitting. I hate them.
it's pure, unbridled prejudice. And now I must go look at my toes...I don't remember mine looking like yours, though I followed the pattern exactly (I think...)!

Those are some seriously gorgeous socks! I love them in the pumpkin color.

Gorgeous socks! I knew that orange looked familiar. I'm knitting a cowl in Plucky Pumpkin Latte and loving it.

So cute! Well done!

Lynn said...

Great socks! Yes I like the pattern going down the side as well. And good for you for having her trained to pose with her socks!!! I find that's easier than getting them to clean their room!!! LOL
