I just finished the most beautiful socks! I’m keeping these. That is a real feat (pun intended)!
This photo shows Spotty Jean and the start of the first sock. By now I had fallen in love with the pattern, color and feel. These are a cashmere blend, so … WOW! Soft!
This is the back of the heel. The pattern is called the Luxury Hiya Hiya heel. It is a series of crossing cables. I plan to use this in more socks. Visually, it is stunning. I have not worn them yet, so I will give it the old tennis shoe test soon.
I finished these today, and here they are being clocked on sock forms. I think they would be pretty cool stockings hanging there on the mantel. I’ll leave them overnight to dry, but I am not holding my breath for gifts in them this time of the year. Really, these socks will be gift enough.
This one took me longer then usual because I didn’t work on them every day, and then when I worked on them it wasn’t for very long each time. I’m baby sitting my parents dog, Ray, and no one can resist watching him and my 2 dogs play! My home has been bursting at the seams with cute dogs.
I am going to do the next KAL (knit along) with Hiya Hiya. That will be a set of whatever you call those mittens with no finger or thumb tops.
My next post will be of elephant ear art. Stay tuned!
