Yarn: Knit Picks Swish, color Dublin 4 skeins
Needles: set of 4 dpn size US4- I knit a bit tight and they fit my size 6.5 feet perfectly.
I love these socks! They are so warm and squishy. There was so much going on in the pattern that I was never bored knitting them. The pattern was very straightforward and easy to understand. These are a little thick to wear with shoes and a bit slouchy (as in the pics in the magazine) but they are perfect for wearing around the house- especially since I am always cold!The details really make these socks...like the way the ribbing flows into the cable. I am in love with that cable!The cable also flows onto the top of the foot. Did I mention I love that cable?I love the very hard to photograph cable down the back of the leg and the slope of the decreases down the leg. The heel flap fits my heel perfectly! I shall never knit another short row heel!
Hands down this is one of my favorite knits ever! They were interesting to knit, the pattern was perfectly written, I learned a new technique (Old Norwegian cast on) and most important-they fit!
