Hey everyone! I rarely, rarely post WIPs here because, well, I knit fairly quickly (read: obsessively) and I just find it more gratifying to wait and post the surprise FO. But these Bayerische socks, they're just beautiful and amazing and super clever and ridiculously fun to knit - I can't help but share. I'm plunging further and further into my semi-unhealthy love affair with cable knits. Mmm, these socks are my best friend. lol :inlove:

Wow! I bookmarked that pattern. I can see that I am going to have to get myself some solid sock yarn to do them.

BTW, when do you sleep, girlfriend? You're a knitting fiend!!

Lovely, lovely, lovely!

I can't see your pictures, but the pattern is beautiful. It looks hard! So I'm impressed anyway. What yarn did you use?

Rachel, that is one great looking sock!

Is your tattoo in Greek, or am I just reading upside down. MMMmmmmm.

Could you post the pattern for us?

Didn't you just show us the yarn?
You ARE obsessed :teehee: !

Yes, I did just show the yarn - haha I am SO obsessed! But now I'm starting the stole, so sock progress will be a bit slower. ;) My tattoo is in Greek - it's "psallo" which means to sing, or literally to pluck, as in pluck an instrument. It's where we get the word Psalm from - it's so important to me because it's musical and spiritual - the two most important things to me!
You can easily find the pattern online, it's Eunny Jang's Bayerishe sock pattern :) Thanks for the feedback everyone!

So THAT'S where my Saturday went.... :)

lol Seriously the progress will be much slower on the second sock, as I'm working on a sweet stole, too :D

Rachel, that is so pretty I'm tempted to copy the picture and put it under my pillow. Love the color and love the pattern. :yay:
