they are done! hooray!!! i can’t say enough about the yarntini yarn. yummy. so yummy. anyhoo, butter (k) said that he loved them and immediately put them on. (well of course he needed green socks for st. patrick’s day!). here’s another look at them. (our beloved daughter was the stylist for this shot)

i’ve been itching to use this yarn for awhile. i love the super bright color…it’s so happy and spring-like! i’ve also been hankering to use a solid sock yarn with a cable pattern. most variegated yarns obscure all the hard work one puts into cables, don’t you agree? with yarn in hand i picked out this pattern:

the pattern describes the sock as “a fluid, allover cable pattern…suitable for casual or dressy use. a modern classic.” i’ll add “that screams for attention with it’s vivid texture/color combination”. take a look:

needles: 4 – #2 latern moon ebony dpns
notes: 72 stitches cast on, 2″ cuff, cuts yarn at heel?!?
it’s a somewhat enjoyable pattern. things i would alter…i would knit it with 5 needles instead of four; there is too much tension. unfortunately. the boogie man stole my fifth needle…oh, and the pattern has you cutting off the yarn when you start the heel flap, wtf?!? weird. otherwise, i can’t wait to see how this one turns out.
