Little Cable Knee Highs – Done!

Can you believe it? I finished knitting a pair of socks! I am very happy with how they turned out – they fit PERFECTLY. Although, I love the irony of finishing a pair of knee high WOOL socks right as the heat of summer is about to descend on central Texas. Ha. It may be a little while until I wear them. I am now very spoiled after knitting with Madelinetosh Sock (in candlewick). They seriously have awesome yarn in amazing colors. I want more.

I learned so many new techniques with these socks – increases (yo knit through back loop, m1r, m1l), decreases, magic loop, Judy’s magic cast-on for toe up socks, short rows, Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off for the top, turning a heel. Whew. I love the tiny cable running up the back of the socks – reminds me of the old fashioned seam in stockings. I must say that I feel pretty confident in my knitting abilities now. Next socks I make, I’ll be knitting two at a time!

So confident, in fact, that I am going to take on my first knitted garment – the Sophia sweater as a KAL. I already bought the yarn – Universal Cotton Supreme in Emerald and it is knitting up so soft! As much as I wanted to do the sweater in Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in mineral, the color was no where to be found. Oh well. I think I may be happier with this cotton yarn for the summer. AND emerald is the pantone color of the year after all.

    The socks look stunning!! I think they suit your personality, too. They have class, without being complicated. Congratulations on such a fabulous finished product. I can’t wait to see how the sweater goes. Once I’m through with my volunteer knitting in a few more days, I’ll be joining you in fun garment knitting and I hope we’ll find time to sit and knit together.
