I finally finished a pair of socks I have been working on since the beginning of the semester! They feature a flowery motif, which certainly makes them spring time socks!
The pattern is Tiptoe Through the Tulips socks, by one of my favorite designers, Wendy Johnson. As far as I know most of her sock patterns are toe up like this one. I know that not everyone will agree, but I vastly prefer toe up designs to top down designs, I find them to be more efficient and more fun to knit.
These are the first socks I've ever knit with such intensive cabling, which was fun for about half of the sock and then slowly became more tedious. But now that they are finished I don't regret it in the least bit because the design is so pretty.
The yarn was nice to work with, it was Shibui Knits sock. Now it wasn't my favorite merino sock yarn ever, but I don't have any complaints either, it certainly made for a pretty pair of socks!
Also, for some reason the color of the yarn doesn't photograph well, it is more of a wasabi color rather than what is pictured here.
It feels so good to finally have a finished project to show off!
