When Socks Knit Themselves

Rib and Cable Socks
My 9th pair of 2009.
Pattern: Rib and Cable Socks from Interweave Knits, Fall 2005
Needles: #2 addi turbos
Yarn: Valley Yarns Franklin, handdyed by me in Espresso
Size: Men's 10
Started: May 24 - Finished: May 28
Rib and Cable Socks
i followed the pattern, except that i reversed the direction of the cables on the second sock. the heel turn and toe instructions were a little weird, but i went with it. if i were to do it again, i'd use a different increase on the heel turn instead of a YO.

yay for socks that only took 5 days. i suppose the holiday weekend helped. these will be for my dad for his birthday/Father's Day.


  1. Great Dad socks! (YOs on a non-short row heel turn? That does seem odd...)

  2. That yarn looks great knit up! Lucky dad!

  3. They're beautiful! But... how come my socks don't knit themselves? What's wrong with them???

  4. I made a pair of these in 2005 from Mtn.Colors Bearfoot - they are as pretty as the day I completed them! What a wonderful gift for your Dad - they are seriously handsome socks!
