View Full Version : Widdershins--Finally FO!

Alrighty these gosh darned socks are finally done.
Two at a time, toe up, from the Knitty pattern.
This is my second ever pair of socks and I think they came out alright. You can't really tell from the pics but the detail on the cables is really nice in this yarn (LionBran MicroSpun).

These pictures are pre-blocking. I just wet them and laid them out my blocking surface to dry. I'm a little worried that the wet-blocking is gonna mush the cables though. Whaddaya all think? I mean on the one hand...these are going to my cousin as a gift and they'll likely go through a million washer/dryer cycles....so if a little water is gonna destroy the cables I might as well get it over with. On the other, I'd like them to at least be pretty when I give them to her.

So...will my cables get icky? How can I fix them?

Oh! and just for fun I included a pic of a little kitty I knit the other night. Found the pattern here somewhere.

I'm pretty proud of myself. :happydance:
And for all my griping over in the General thread about MicroSpun and it's splittiness, the color really is lush and wonderful.
