It's taken me two years to complete these socks - far too many distractions with other projects! It's been well worth the wait, I'm so pleased with the result.
Wollmeise yarn is such a joy to knit with and produces such wonderful stitch definition. This cable pattern is one I found in an old stitch book. I love the stitch so much I decided to create a pattern with it. The beauty of this cable pattern is that although it is an 16 row pattern repeat, only 3 of the rows are cabling, the rest are knit and purl - so easy to execute and memorise.
The sock pattern itself is toe up with a simple wrap and turn heel. Aimed at the intermediate knitter with experience of cabling. I've called it 'Iona', which is a small island off the western coast of Scotland - a island renowned for its tranquility and natural beauty.
Yarn: Wollmeise 100% Merino Superwash
Needles: 2.5 mm
Pattern: My own - it will be released as soon as I've written it up.
Enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday weekend UK peops :)
