I wanted to deliver the Crossing Cables socks to my mother this weekend so I spent most of Saturday and part of Sunday finishing the second sock. Of course, the socks were well received.
This is such an enjoyable pattern that I plan to make another pair for myself. I’ve been looking at various tweed yarns for the next pair and found some superwash red tweed called Smart by Sandnes while shopping at Sew EZ Too in Spokane this weekend. The price was right so I also picked up enough for some dark blue tweed socks.
Those are gorgeous socks ! Beautiful.
They look beautiful.
Do you have sock blockers or are you just using a wire hanger?
I love the way your sock turned out! Very cool.
Woohoo! These look amazing!
I’ve used the Smart yarn for other projects. It’s nice stuff. It should make a great pair of socks. I think I’ve used that tweedy red as well. It was in baby’s sweater. I like the flecks of colour it has in it – especially the golds.
Have a great week there.
The socks are beautiful. I love the blue colour especially. I am going to start sock knitting this Sat. Hope I can knit beautiful socks like yours.
Lovely! Did you have any yarn left? I’m thinking a pair of Crossing Cables for a man’s size 11 foot might require a second skein of Mountain Colors…
I really love these socks. Could you share where you got the pattern. wonderful job. I wish they were on my feet!
This pattern is one of my favorites.
I got it from Danny Ouellette.
