FO – Cadence Socks

Maybe it’s because it’s so hot out. Maybe it’s because I don’t want to carry around a bunch of stuff. Maybe it’s because I don’t particularly care for the feel of heavy wool right now.

A Combination of those perhaps?

All this to explain that my next few Finished objects will be socks.

I have heard knitting buddies say that they don’t particularly like knitting sweaters in the summer. I’ve always said “OK” because it didn’t bother me much. Well, this year it does. My motto this summer: Small projects for the WIN!!!

Cadence Socks

…mind the leaves on the bottom of my feet….

I think there was something I missed in the directions about the direction of part of the calf pattern and it was supposed to make the socks symmetrical.

Whoops. That’s about as exasperated as I can get about it. I hardly notice it.

I really enjoyed knitting these socks because they were a little longer than most published patterns and, for me, that’s a plus because 1- I can use all the yarn (or more of a majority of it) and 2- this means my legs will be warmer :-) No complaints there!

    Lovely! I think Cadance was the last pair of socks I knit (I’ve been … preoccupied … lately, plus all my yarn is still in some box, somewhere). I wouldn’t have even noticed the leg issue if you hadn’t pointed it out (actually, I had to stare for a while to find it).

    I get a lot of sock knitting done in the summer. So far I’ve finished 4 pairs. I’ll pick up my sweaters again this fall.

    Love your Cadence socks!
