Travelling Sock Picture

FO: Coral Socks
Pattern: Uptown Boot Socks by Jennifer L. Appleby (Favorite Socks, IWK 2003)
Yarn: KnitPicks Bare (100% Peruvian Wool), Fingering Weight, custom dyed by me
Started 08/31/08, Finished 09/11/08
Mods: reversed cables on second sock for a mirrored look
Photo courtesy of the lovely Saviche (name changed to protect the innocent) over at QSBR.com, taken in Yosemite overlooking El Capitan and Half Dome.

This pattern was great. I love the way the cables look like spirals when off, but turn into little balloons when worn. It's like black magic. Or bright pink and orange magic. Saviche picked out the pattern for me and then expressed such admiration that I decided to gift them to her. Also, she has really cold feet all the time and 100% wool should fix that. If it doesn't, she'd probably be better off with no feet at all. (I keed, I keed!)

I have been such a slacker with the picture uploading. There are all these pretty pictures of fabric I bought last weekend, not to mention the picture of Saviche receiving her new socks. I need some bloggy motivation. Perhaps the thought of flaunting a finished Razor Cami will whip me into shape. ;) It's so close, and I can feel the first brisk breezes of fall already. Hold on summer! Just a few more days!

Lovely! I've been eyeing this pattern recently too! How much yardage did it take?

I made those socks about 6 months ago and they are my go-to socks when I want something warm and comfortable. I love them in pink!
