Cabley Embers

Yay for an FO! Despite all the stuff going on around here, it's nice to finish something.

003
If I don't have a sock completed by the 15th of the month, I usually cast on something quick so I can finish by the end of the month for the Sock-a-Month KAL. I know I don't "have' to finish a pair, but I've been doing it for so long (like 5 yrs) it's really a habit. (could have a worse habit you know ;)

These cabled footies fit the bill, although it still took 15 days to finish...worsted weight even. Told you it's crazy busy around here. Even with college guy gone.

Toe pic! Gotta have that one. It was nice to knit cuff down, I like a little change once in a while. I love the colors, even have a bit leftover for a little hat I think, well for a baby, not for me! I have to make sure not to use my pointy needles though...it was splitting like crazy. I've used LL worsted many times and no trouble at all. So that's why I think it's the needles in this case.

Cute footies!

I didn't finish my socks in time for August's SAM. Between doctor appointments, surgery, and a recovery where I just couldn't sit still and concentrate --- I just ran out of time.

Days are shorter, mornings and nights are colder - have a need for anklets! With cables, of course!

I hope it cools off enough soon to be able to wear those beauties. Love the colours :0)

Those are super cute. The colorway reminds me of one by Colinette Jitterbug!

Very pretty! Trust me, I'm counting down the days until I can break out my clogs and wear all my handknit socks with them.
