I finished my Bavarian Cable socks (pattern from the book 'socks from the top up' by Wendy D Johnson) around 3 weeks ago. Around that time we were making the most of that scarce commodity around these parts - sunny weather, so the socks just got put away in the drawer. I completely forgot all about them until I saw them peeking out the bottom of the pile this morning, it was a nice surprise, discovering something handknit and unworn.
So I am making the most of them today by having a socky type of day. No shoes just socks so I can stare at all the speckledy loveliness everytime my eyes look towards the floor.

Yarn is Brooklyn merino sock from Cakewalk on Etsy
And whilst I was out of doors, I snapped a pic of my fave thing out there right now - my Cardinal De Richelieu Oops my mistake these are actually Ferdinand Pichard roses. Perfectly speckled just like the socks :)
