.... & xxx




I just cast off my 1st pair of socks for the SSS - they are the Dots & Crosses (.... & xxx) socks which is my own design. I am really happy with these socks & plan to write out the pattern (when I figure out how to create a pdf document).










Here's a close -up of the pattern ....








I have also cast off the 1st Jeweled Step Socks & cast on the 2nd & this time it's going so much faster once I get used to moving the stitches around & using the alphabet markers - take a look at the gusset increase which begins on the side of the instep .....



.... & the jeweled step pattern is on the other side of the foot ....

The 2nd sock is knitting up fast & I should have my 2nd pair in the next couple of days .... what should I knit next ? I am really enjoying knitting all these socks but I just can't resist & cast on this ....

Such great socks, I love the jewels' colour and the Dots and Crosses look really comfortable. I saw that bag on Knitting Daily, how funny, a knitted knitting bag with needles!!!

Oh yes, that is one cool bag! I love the jeweled pattern on that sock & the dots & crosses are so cute!

Rose Red said...

Love the jeweled pattern too! The construction looks great!

Very classy looking socks Ann and who could resist a knitting bag that uses knitting needles.

What beautiful socks! You are inspriring me to get out my copy of Cat's book. You have picked wonderful yarns to go with the patterns, I especially like your dots and crosses pattern.

I really was NOT going to get that book. I wasn't even going to look at it. I already have so many socks I want to knit, but man, oh man, I love those socks! I may have to reconsider Yours are pretty cool, too! Love the look of them. Congrats!

The socks are so lovely! I'm really liking that jeweled step pattern. Is that a pattern that I could find?

You're doing the most beautiful socks there, that's for sure! Both look fantastic!

Love the new socks! I'm itching to cast on for a pair and learn some new skills. Cat is amazing and you made it real!

Rachel said...

Those are great socks! I think I have the same thoughts as others who are commenting...is that a pattern that will be available?
