But in the midsts of all this craziness, I finally have a finished object. My last one was from April.

This was one fun pair of socks to knit! The winding, cable-like pattern is what attracted me to the pattern in the first place.
And something I found particularly interesting was the way the heel flap was developed:
The winding cable-like pattern then POP a heel flap!! That part of the sock almost made me giddy as I was knitting it.
I enjoyed this pattern very much. I seem to be on a sock craze of late. And a STR and Cookie A. one as well now that I think of it. Explanation of socks–well I guess that’s pretty easy. It’s summer and gross out. Socks are portable and small and most likely I’m finishing up someone’s Christmas present so that’s a win win right there. I’m inspired to knit with Socks that Rock sock yarn of late because I’m drawn to many patterns that are friendly to multi-color colorways, which also explains my draw to Cookie A. patterns as well.
What will be next is Cookie’s Raven Swirl Socks with March, 2011′s Rockin’ Sock Club installment:
On a personal note, I won’t be back for a while we move. I look forward to showing off my Autumn Rose Pullover with all the ends woven in and a lovely neck band:
