I’ve been knitting. Crazy, I know. I’ve even been knitting entire pairs of socks. Since it seems like a bit much to fire them all into one post, I’m going to show off my Maevas today. I made two pair. The first pair I didn’t realize I’d want to go up a needle size for the cabled instep stitches, so they’re a little tight but still so gorgeous. These first ones were made with some Obedience yarn in “Drunken Tumble”.




I loved the pattern so much I didn’t want to just let it lie at one pair. Yes, I actually reuse patterns. It seems strange to me for me to do this since I have access to thousands and thousands of different patterns, but as is evidenced by my billionty pair of Breathless, when I like something I like it a lot. I cast on and made another pair using CakeWalk Yarns Footsie in Lemonade. They turned out absolutely beautiful. I like the yarn a lot too, it was easy to work with and the colours are brilliant.
