Put a fork in 'em ...
... they're done! Only sheer stubbornness got me through the last couple of repeats on the leg. Seriously. Now that they're done I'll admit that I still think the pattern is pretty. The cabled knots make a nice subtle effect and stacked them this way in ribbed columns makes for a snug-fitting sock. It's just too bad that the knitting of them became such a chore. The yarn feels really soft. I'm curious to see how well it wears.
I've folded up the finished socks and tucked them into a poly bag which I tied with some curling ribbon. Now they're ready for giving away. A cute little package, isn't it?
With the Knotty socks done, I've turned my attention to finishing the eyelet strip afghan that Nancy and I worked on together, as well as casting on a new pair of socks. My next sock pattern choice is Storm - simple columns of seed stitch look to be the antithesis of the aforementioned cable knots. After all, a change is as good as a rest, right?
