Hey, look!

I finished something! And its even something I can show you! (If you’ll pardon the crappy picture.)

I am absolutely loving the pattern. It took a couple trips through the cable charts to really get the hang of them, but they got easier, and given how infrequently I picked it up, the sock knit up pretty quickly.

Probably it would have been better in a more solid color, but I think the subtle changes and short runs in the yarn leave the cabling unobscured enough that it works. As much as I love the color (Father Ailnoth’s Sin), I’m not sold on the yarn (Sanguine Gryphon’s Sea Sock). There isn’t anything in particular that’s wrong with it, and it feels delightful on my foot, but when I knit, it feels…squeaky. There’s something about how it slides along the needle that just doesn’t feel comfortable to me. Its a beautiful yarn with a great sheen, and it has the tight twist that I like, but I don’t think I need to buy it again.

Now, if I can work my way through some Christmas knitting, maybe this sucker can have a mate.
