  • elemmaciltur 6y

    : Thanks! Yeah, I surprised myself at how I stuck to it the whole time. :-) Put a lot of love into this project. ;-)

    : You meant cables?
  • looseends 6y

    I have always wanted to knit this pattern. It's amazing how much knitting gets done when you stick to one project. This is a good reminder for me.
  • elemmaciltur 6y

    : You should! It's a pattern that's easy enough to memorise.
  • Sock-a-holic 6y

    They look amazing, warm and comfy. Super job V!
  • elemmaciltur 6y

    : Thanks! I'm going to cast-on one for myself in Wollmeise soon. :-)
  • Sock-a-holic 6y

    Ooo what color???
  • elemmaciltur 6y

    : Probably Koralle im Meer (left from my Mystic Light shawl). Have to use another colourway....knit up with the Koralle im Meer last night and had to frog. It was too busy for a cable pattern. So, I'm just going to try a new Sockitecture with the Koralle im Meer for the time being.

    Lucky guy! Gorgeous socks!

    : Thanks!

    : Thank you! Although the first time I tried knitting these socks, the no-chart threw me off. I work better with charts.
