Socks Socks and More Socks!

It's all socks, all the time, these days in Knitnana-ville!

First up: the Personal Sock Club April selection, Scottish Highland STR:
I turned the heel at the show this weekend and I love the way the slip stitch heel looks in the striping of the yarn, don't you?

Then:
The Regia Silk Cabletini Sock for my sis-in-law. She tried this on and pronounced it a good fit, so I cabled on, finishing the heel bed and turning the heel tonight:
Now to decide just when to stop knitting the gusset and when to start the cabling on the cuff. I do know there's precious little yardage in each ball of this, so they may not be very tall cuffs!
(sigh)

Anyway, this seems to be all the brain can endure right now. Better to knit mindlessly and recover from the weekend!

By the way. Does anyone notice anything odd about my current knitting projects? Odd for Knitnana at least?

Oooo! Pretty socks! Pretty socks make me sooo happy.

The cable pattern on the green socks looks really similar to the yarn over cable that I recently did on a pair of green socks. Great minds think alike! :)

I started cabling the cuff on those when the gusset decreases were finished. I always do the heel pattern all the way through the decreases and and then start the cuff pattern as soon as the decreases are finished.

I always have a moment of disconnect because I'm a top-down sock knitter. However, I do believe that's a Knit Picks circular...is Nana magic-looping it?

The socks look great. Knit on!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
