On to the socks now!
I had some leftover yarn from another project, that wanted using up. So I made socks! Of course! :)
Pattern: No pattern, just a pretty cable stitch. (can be found on p. 101, "Claw Cable",in "Big book of Knitting Patterns" from Sterling Publishing, as well as in numerous other books, I'm sure)
Yarn: one partial skein Spa in coral lipstick, from Naturally Caron
Needles: size US3 DPN
Nitty-gritty: Cuff down, short row heel, star toe
They are short, since I had only a partial skein leftover. I do like the cable though and might use it on longer socks later on.
Close up of cable:
(The colour is closer to nature in the first two pictures.)On to August! :)
I started them: Toe up and two at once (DKing)! Wish me luck! I know people do it top down all the time.. I wanted toe up for a change....So far so good!
Here is a sneak-peak:
