First Post!

Hi Everyone! I signed up for this KAL a month or so ago, but I haven't had time to post about the socks I was working on. I really enjoyed making these socks, and the pattern was super easy, and super easy to memorize!
The feet look really big in the picture, but I think part of the reason is the angle of the camera and the fact that the leg is ribbed which make those look smaller.
The pattern is the Yarn Over Cable on page 43. I used Paton's Kroy yarn (I think the colourway is called Krazy Stripes, but I'm not totally sure), and I think I used 2.75 mm DPNs.
I'll definitely make this pattern again - this time for myself. These socks went out to my Sockapalooza Pal. She's received them and said she loves them.
There are so many wonderful patterns in this book - so many to choose from that it's hard to choose just which one. I guess that means I'll just have to knit them all!

They are beautiful! Both yarn and cable texture look amazing. I bet they are cozy too!

I'm working on this same pattern now. I want to do it in a finer yarn eventually. It's fun to work, isn't it?
