Golden Cabled Wonders! Iron Knitter Round 4 Complete

23. March 2010 06:06 by Jobo | 0 Comments

I'm still here!  We both had our turn with the late winter cold last week, so while there was lots of knitting accomplished, there was more wimping and wussing then blogging!  I was really tired out in the evenings, and I'm afraid I've gotten behind on showing you what I've been up to

I finished my Golden Wonder Cabled socks (also known as "Maeve" by Janneke Maat available as a free pattern on Ravelry) of course strictlyl on time to continue my participation in the next round of Iron Knitter.  Currently I am working on my round 5 socks, and hoping that I can remain in the competition until the final round!  But... back to the gold socks!

I really enjoyed working on this pattern, and am really pleased with the end result.  I know some of the other Iron Knitter Competitors found that they were a little short in the leg as written, but being a short person with even shorter legs, I find them to be a nice change.  I don't really need socks that go up to my eyeballs anyways.  At 4'10'' it really isn't that far up!golden wonder with boxed in

I think I will hide this pattern away in my box of toys for another time... I think they would look great in steel grey or maybe in a nice wood colored brown?  Heck they'd look good in Blue too.  See?  I need to make another pair!

I am finding that my SockWars socks-of-death are really coming in handy with the fact that my office is an icebox.  I wear them quite often and enjoy them immensely.  Here they are visiting with the new Gold Socks...  I like to think they are friends!  The alpaca blend in these "Don't box me in" socks is wearing nicely and is super light and soft! I love the blues and purples.  I don't think anyone else has EVER knit me a pair of socks - it's always the other way around!  I feel all spoiled when I wear them :)
