Purple Sock of Awesomeness

I wanted to get a better shot of these, but somehow, the weather hasn't been cooperating. So, without further ado, I will share my not-so-good shot of the purple sock of awesomeness, AKA Hyacinth by Janel Laidman. It's so pretty. This is the instep.


And this... this is the heel.


Yeah. Genius. And so much fun to knit! I'm usually not a fan of intricate cables you can't memorize, but this was fun. There's a definite learning curve -- the design starts out relatively simple, and new techniques get added as you work your way up to the cuff. As somebody who doesn't knit a lot of toe-up socks, I have to say I learned a lot.

Now I have to finish sock #2. Except... it's too hot to knit. Maybe tomorrow...

That is a beautiful pattern! Well done.

Ugh, too hot for knitting is right! Dunk your feet in a bowl of cold water and CO for that second sock. :)

I like that pattern a lot! I think I need to knit a pair of socks in a similar pattern.

I see I'm not the only resisting trying on socks for photo shoots in this weather.

Yours is lovely.
