Journey Cable Socks and 4 Socktoberfest Cast Ons

Aren't they pretty socks? I love the way the cable splits and winds toward the instep and heel to border the front and back ribbing - such a simple but beautiful sculptured touch!

Journey Cable Socks Journey Cable Socks

Pattern: Journey Cable Socks by Sivia Harding
Yarn: Lisa Souza Sock - Gingerpeach ( a bit splitty for cabling, but a beautiful, subtle colorway)
Needles: 2 Socks together on 1 40" 2.25 mm circular
Size: Medium (68 stitches)

I have 4 more pairs of socks going (have already blown off my recent rule of only 1- 2 items "on the needles"), BUT there are very important reasons (excuses) why I HAD to start each one of them ....

Spring Pools

My close and very talented knitting friend, Linda, ( we have wonderful coffee and knitting time on Wednesday mornings) has designed beautiful, swirling, flowing socks called Spring Pools (Ravelry project link). She has a free pdf. download for her pattern which is easy and fun to knit (and goes fast in sport weight yarn!) I had to start these!!

Binsenkorbchen Socks

The Sock Knitter's Anonymous October Sockdown challenge is to use any Stephanie van der Linden pattern. I love my Florenz socks, so was excited to start another one of her slip stitch designs - Binsenkorbchen - available as a free Ravelry download or through the Socken-Kreativ Liste yahoo group. I'm using a gray background with Lorna's Laces "Iris Garden" for the stitch pattern - mmmm pretty!

TTL Mystery Socks

How could I not join in on Kirsten's Through the Loops mystery sock??? Clue 1 complete in Cherry Tree Hill "Mint"

Wilderness Socks

Last, but not least, Dave has been asking for another pair of socks for his cold hockey rink coaching. It has been 2 years since I made the last pair (which have been worn constantly through 2 winters and are still in excellent shape - I have nothing but good things to say about Austermann Step - the aloe and jojoba oil keep on giving!)
He has been so persistent in his desire for another pair of socks, that I finally opened my sock yarn drawers and let him pick his favorite yarn for the next pair. He chose Mountain Colors Bearfoot in the "Wilderness" colorway.....the man has good taste!
