I’ll admit it. I’m setting this up to publish in advance. Handy feature, that scheduling business! Means you get to see what I’m up to and I don’t have to try to kick out a post from my phone. Everybody wins!
I finally managed a finish this week. Which feels every so slightly funny to say after how quickly I got things on and off the needles last month. But I think I had a 3 week stretch there where I didn’t finish anything. This is better!
Technically I knit three socks in order to call Winding Roads finished. The first two were the actual socks. The third was a mini-sock that allowed me to earn some points for the Noble House of Slytherin.
Overall, I like the socks. The yarn- oh my. If you haven’t knit with yarn including cashmere, you haven’t lived as a knitter. This is from indigodragonfly in their MCN Sock base. The color way is one of my favorites- Cute & Cuddly Mutant Zombie Squirrels of Doom. How do you not love that? The fact that it’s a dream to knit is just gravy on the icing!
The sideways cable cuff is the detail that I adore about these. A pretty vanilla knit, otherwise, the cuff is enough to make it interesting. And it turns out I LOVE cables. Shifting stitches around to make a pattern pop is magic to this knitter’s hands. I know they eat up more yarn and they require a bit more attention than I’m usually willing to give my sock knitting, but the fact is, I LOVE cables. I will knit more of them very soon.
