FO: 2 Pairs of Socks for Friends
I recently made 2 pairs of socks for my friends from yarn from my stash. My camera has been sitting with the pictures on it for a few days, so I thought I'd post it. (I'll also post this in the AnySock KAL II and the Stashbusting thread) They both follow the same pattern, just a basic sock with cables on the foot. (Sorry for the format of the pics, but they wouldn't upload 3 times.)

Knit Picks Essential (colorway - Shoreline Twist) I must say, I really didn't like the way this yarn unwound while I was knitting. It was very, very annoying. I doubt I'll work with the yarn again. Unless I'm dying and to save myself I had to knit with this yarn.

Attachment 52909

Knit Picks Imagination (colorway - Wicked Witch) I really liked this yarn. I love the colors and it knits up really soft, so these socks were lots of fun to make.

Beautiful!

Not sure why you're having trouble posting them.

It's just because I've already posted them in 2 diff places. It just took like 10 minutes, which usually means there's a problem.

As a newbie sock knitter, I love to look at hand-knit socks. Yours are really nice - I LOVE the cables. Great job!
