Third Pair of Socks

Am I a sock knitter now?  They still aren’t perfect as the foot is a tad short on one and both, the feet are too wide.  I was just reading The Yarn Harlot’s Knitting Rules about socks and I think I will know how to make the feet narrower next time.  Although I’m going to see if going down a needle size, as I am with the Kai-Mei,  will help….

So without further ado…ta-da!!!!!!!! My Shifting Sands socks……

The pattern is Sifting Sands by Diana Vance.

The yarn is Nerd Girl Yarns Dingo in “You Call This Archeology?” A random fandom color.

I did cables for the first time!!!!!!

I think as long as you have knit (or are knitting) at least one sock, and have the desire to knit more, you're a sock knitter! =) Congrats on finishing these...they are lovely. And there are even TWO of them, LOL!

You've probably been bitten by the sock bug. It's known to be rampant and there's no cure. :-D

It took me a couple of cracks at it before I settled into my preferred sock needle size (0) and my preferred number of stitches (70 or so), but practice makes perfect. They are lovely socks!

You make and share such nice things!! I want to make Kai-mei soon too.

This is one of the many reasons I have nominated you for the Versatile Blog Award!

Your socks look great. I've yet to try anything other than plain socks.
