one down, another cast on

The baby cable pattern from Sensational Socks. I have one finished and another cast on. Something about Wollmeise, I find that I enjoy working with it so much, I can't resist casting on a second one immediately - giving me hope of a cure for the elusive second sock syndrome. maybe the doc could give you a prescription for Wollmeise? My doc recently wrote up a scrip for me for a new boss - so I think anything is possible. I hope I won't need a refill on the boss.

finished toe...
eye of the partridge heel

I know, I could have waited til I have a second one done since I just blogged about this yesterday, but I couldn't resist showing a finished something. I also started a ball band dishcloth to go with some handmade soap I was talking about - a nice distraction for socks I guess, you know, if you want a distraction from socks, that is.

*also Crystal Palace dpn's didn't break, not even once - I may be onto something.

Very pretty! I don't blame you for wanting to cast on for the second right away.

Very nice - I'm doing the Baby Cable rib (I switched to the Eye of Partridge heel too), but mine are in STR - pebbles. Yours look great! PS - I'm waiting to cast on my Wollmeise purchases, because I fear the same thing as you (and I have also ordered directly from Claudia - she's a gem).

Those are so pretty! Lovely colorway! I need a pair of those Dansko's, perfect to show off your handknit socks! :)

Fabulous fall socks! I just love "Sensational Knitted Socks" -- such an easy book to use.

BTW, I have those clogs in brown! I bought them with the express purpose of showing off handknit socks :-)

Gorgeous socks! And cool Dansko's too. I got a pair today out at The Shoe Box in Black Earth. I love them! Pics on my blog soon! Thanks for the suggestion!

So pretty! And I love the new shoes.

mollybees: you just gave me a huge flashback. Every summer we would go to the Shoe Box for my new school shoes (that was back in the day when it was in a tiny shop in the center of town). I miss that place....

Wonderful job on the sock! I really need to get my hands on that yarn. Those shoes are fantastic as well.

Wow, that looks great! You make beautiful socks!
