Well, isn't it high time to tell you about three new sock designs we added to Figheadh last month? I think so!
The first one is the Red Rover Cable Socks. I think the cables look like little elbows linked to play Red Rover, so there ya go! There must be something very European about these, because I've gotten orders for them from Finland and Germany. Who knew?
I used Angora Extra to make these, so they are really just for show, or for bed socks. The yarn is very delicate and fluffy!
I made my first pair with Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Juniper. See?
You can't see the cables nearly as well, but the socks are yummy and entirely wearable! I love this yarn!
I had help from my brilliant tester friend Tracey with this pattern. She made her Red Rovers with Regia.
Here's a back shot. They have a traditional heel flap and gusset and a wedge toe with Kitchener join. Just your basic sock, but with elbows!
Now, on that note, I think I'd better save the other socks for a different post. I kinda went crazy with the pics (I could have done more!)
Sorry to have been away from blogland for so long, but I am home for the holidays, (like which there's no place), so I have more time to post. More to come!
