One (almost) down

Well, I'm almost through my first Sock it to Me sock. Here it is on my blog (I wonder if this will didn't--I've copied it to photobucket)

This is the "Aran Sandal Socks" pattern from XRX's book Socks, Socks, Socks.

I'm enjoying the cables. I do feel like these should be knee socks, though. The height looks dreadful with the cuff turned up like they are--I look like I weigh 300 pounds--but it looks better with the cuff turned down. I just wanted you to see ALL the hard-won cables. :)

I had planned to finish last night, but I'm about 4 rounds away plus grafting. Let's just say bedtime with the kids did not go as planned. Now I have to make another one. Those cables are addictive enough that I think I will; I do have another pair with one done where I haven't started the second, so we'll see...

Oooh! I've looked at that pattern in the book but haven't tried it yet.

You did such a beautiful job on the cables. Can't wait to see the finished pair.

Love those cables! Must get my hands on that pattern book pronto!

Beautiful!! I have been wanting to knit some "clog" socks. I love the cables! You've done a beautiful job.
