Foot Cozy Socks...Check


I finished my Foot Cozy Socks (inspired by a glass cozy pattern in the July issue of Creative Knitting)!! It's a very simple cable pattern (the cables happened regularly enough to make the pattern not boring).








So, here is what I did: Lorna's Laces Sport in Pale Pink (there is nothing pale about this yarn). 60 stitches on size US2 dpn's. 3-1/2 repeats on the leg and foot. I may have to rename them though... they are so perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (the cables look like the ribbons).
I have started a pair of socks for my son (C.J.). He asked for some (the poor thing knows I'm more likely to finish socks for him than the sweater) so they are on the needles. I'm using the "Father and Son" pattern in the latest issue of Interweave Knits (the same pattern I'm using for my Sockret Pal). Both are coming along nicely. And I also continue to work on Monica's socks, the heel is in sight.
Well, I'm off to bed. More later!

They look simply lovely my dear! I think I also saw them posted on the Fall Cables KAL. I love seeing all the projects on that KAL, don't you?

Beautiful socks. I think they'd be perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Scrumptious socks - the color is amazing and suits the pattern very well. Way to go!
