I've bought the pattern but have yet to make them. Your's are rather handsome and springish in that lovely shade of Kelly green.

Thank You all. The pattern is very easy to follow, I had to modify the toe section a little as I was using two strands of yarn. The heel feels fantastic.

Andy - Spectacular. Love um.

What a great combination of simple lines becoming complex figures, dissolving into blocks. The color speaks black or beige or white, this awesome design would be lost in the sauce. To my eye, you prove those colors are not always the safest choice. Great job!

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

I love the Wollmeise! I love the pattern! I love the designer too!

I ripped out my second sock and am restarting it, I had a sloppy cable cross and it was driving me CRAZY! Luckily I was only on row 34. Hopefully I can get mine done before the end of the week.

Yours look AWESOME! The green wollemise really shows off the cable-work nicely.

See you at MFKR!

I feel your pain. I had to undo some Rounds because I did one cable wrong and I did not catch it until the repeat of the same cable, lol. SO I went back and ripped until the mistake. I was not happy, but I was more happy when I finished the cable in the right place and did another round.

I'm glad you enjoyed knitting the socks as much as I did. Your version looks fantastic.

I had a few false starts until I got a gauge that worked for me but it is a great design. I send Blessings to Mill everytime I look at the pattern or my socks, thanks to his kindness in designing them to benefit the retreats.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Beautiful design,
I really like the way the cables intermingle into braids.
Your work is impressive, (the few pieces I've seen posted)
Anywhere to see more of your finished projects?

You can find more of my stuff at and I am craftyandy on Ravelry as well. I am always busy and looking to learn new techniques. I do like this pattern a lot and I am hoping on making two or 3 pairs. I have made myself a self imposed Pair of Socks Month Club lol, seriously!

Awesome socks. Where was the pattern from? I am almost finished my first pair of socks. Very plain, but they are loved. I will post a picture later.

Those socks are gorgeous. I think that color of green is incredible and is just perfect for this pattern.
