I suddenly realized that I haven't posted about the socks that I finished up just in time for Sock Summit.

First these are the Nautilus Socks. They are knit toe-up. I like these socks a lot. The second sock is a bit bigger than the first sock, because on the second sock I actually followed the directions where it says to go up a needle size for the cabling. That little detail makes the sock just perfect for fitting my foot. I can technically get the first sock on my foot, it just takes a little maneuvering. I probably won't fix it, because it is all done and I don't want to rip it. However, if you are going to make these socks, take the advice of the pattern and knit the cables on a bigger needle! The yarn I used was my LavenderSheep Superwash Sport yarn in color Mountain Sunset!

The other pair of socks I finished are my all-time favorite socks! They are the Autumn in Oregon Socks. I love the pattern and I love the yarn! This is the first time I really have knit with the Tencel Sock yarn in a textured pattern and I simply love it. It shows off the pattern in crisp detail.

Here is the side view. I can say it is very difficult to take pictures of socks on one's own feet. It is a very awkward balancing act to say the least. The yarn I used was my LavenderSheep Tencel Sock Yarn in color Smokey Rose. Mmm...I just love these socks so much!

I was able to get both pairs done in time for Sock Summit. I wore them both during the show and got many compliments on them!
