Cubist socks done!
The Cubist socks by Cookie A. are finished! Too bad they are too tight around the cuff for me. So I made them shorter at the foot too, and will give them away as a gift. I loved knitting with this yarn, and I like the colorway very much. The pattern is lovely, not hard to knit at all. I especially like the attention to detail, which is true Cookie A. style. Notice how the stitches from the cuff melt into the leg pattern. Just beautiful! If I were to make them for myself again, I would only do two of the three leg repeats, that way the cuff would fit too.
pattern: Cubist socks by Cookie A. (free pattern)
yarn: Wandering Cat Yarns - Alley Cat - Purple People Eater (love that name), merino/nylon, 400yds
start-finish: June 26 - July 3
Another shot of my hydrangea's out front. They are so lovely.
Some random, older photos of the pups:
This is the hole Happy dug in Spring. Denny was going to expand it, digging two tunnels. It's filled up again, and so far they've left it alone.
The chase is on!
