As I was tidying up I realized I never showed off these pictures of my finished Cucumber socks (named for the colours of cucumber and fresh bakery bread, which bore a striking resemblance to the yarn when I made cucumber sandwiches on a break from knitting with it):
They're made with a gorgeous cashmere blend sock yarn from Biscotte. I love how Louise can dye variegated yarn so you get a lot of colour and no pooling - Silvia at Stoddart can do it too. It's like having your cake and eating it to get all that gorgeousness without having to jump through fancy-stitch hoops to break it up.
The socks themselves - knit as is coming to be usual with the basic pattern I cobbled together or all my favourite features and fit - are super comfy and long enough in the leg to suit a chilly day.
Though possibly not one as chilly as today. Brrrr.
See you tomorrow!
