One for me

Last week while fishing in the yarn stash for the burgundy to use on The Father's socks I spied this lovely purple yarn of the same make and vintage perfect for socks for me. As I'd signed up over on Ravelry to test another sock pattern I figured this yarn would be perfect for the design.
Just checking it fits the toes
There was an issue with an escapee earlier but it is all fixed now.
This is the most accurate colour Patons Beehive fingering 4ply
So this week I have been dividing my time between three socks with all of them seeing some progress. The knots on these ones held my attention into the wee hours of the morning.
This pattern is as tedious as it looks with those knots formed by a series of miniature cables on lots of consecutive rows. Unfortunately the most interesting part of the sock is this bit which is the foot so it hides in your shoe? Not sure what that is about.
The other two socks have seen some good progress I just don't have any pictoral evidence.
Hope your weekend plans include time spent creating.

I strongly suggest you use these socks to pad around at home(without shoes) so everyone can see how wonderful they are.

Love the colour!

gorgeous work and I agree so much work to be hidden in a shoe. maybe wear it as a mitten for a little while to show it off lol
Happy stitches.

It is a gorgeous design though despite being a bit of a pain to work.

Noice purple...seems reasonable that you should get a new pair for your tootsies out of all this sock production...ok that miniature twisty cable thing hiding in the shoe just seems wasteful, all that work in a nice pattern and it can't be seen!...

Your new socks looks beautiful, looks a lovely cable.

I so admire your intricate sock knitting! I tend to pick vanilla patterns and be speedy about it. You are talented and the stitch definition is incredible :)

Beautiful socks and beautiful knitting! I'm craving a new pair of socks on the needles this autumn.
