I love pink!

I have finished my pink socks!! I LOVE them!





Pattern: Aran-Braid Socks



Yarn: Yarn Pirate superwash merino sock in the Paris colorway



Needles: Knit Picks options circular #1



Mods: none!

This is a really great pattern! I actually never would have considered these unless I had seen the ones that Sheri made for the Mystery Sock KAL! I just love how the pattern is mostly stockingette stitch but with cables running down the sides for interest! And I also learned how to cable without a cable needle too. This really sped things up! I can't imagine trying to use a cable needle for all those tiny cables. Such a great technique.
I'm officially addicted to socks! I think I might cast on for another pair right now!

Great socks! sometimes cables and multicolored socks don't work too well (ask me how I know) but yours looks fabulous. Just printed out the pattern too.

awesome socks! I love how it came out truly variegated or almost striped. I always end up with pools, grr. I think I'll have to try these out too!
