I’ve got another FO friday post for you! And once you finish here, check out the rest at Tami’s Amis.

I finished my pair of soft cable socks! FINALLY! I had these on the needles for 2 months! I only started working on them monogamously in the past week and that allowed me to get them done!

The Notes: I like these socks a lot but I wish I knit them on size 1’s. So today i headed out to the yarn store for new needles for my next socks. I love the simplicity of these socks and i think they are gorgeous if i do say so myself. The 1 x 1 twisted ribbing is super pretty. They also were great to take on the bus. I think I might cast on another pair with the yarn I bought today…am I crazy?

I did make a mistake on these. The cables were supposed to be one CF and one CB but I did them all holding the cable needle in front. Whoops. I realised this when I went to start the second sock so I just went with it. Seriously, I’m one to just go with my mistakes (if they aren’t so bad) instead of fixing one and having them not match. That just irks me.

Overall, super easy pattern and i love my sockies!!! This is my first pair of socks FOR ME. My first pair ever was for my momma (edwardian boating socks).

In case you were wondering…here is what I bought today 😉 The yarn is art-by-ana sock garden, 75%SW merino, 25% nylon. I think I will try my first pair of toe up socks with this skein.
