May Mystery Socks are done!

06.07.09 002

This was the May mystery sock KAL in the SKA group on Ravelry. The name of the pattern is "kiila" which means gusset. As you can see, the pattern design is primarily in the gusset (the area where the sock widens between your toes and heel - for any non-sock-knitters out there).

I wish my cables would have turned out better. I think I should have used the increases the pattern called for (make one) rather than knitting through the front and back loop. I really need to practice this increase and find a way to do this without having holes. But, I think these will be comfy socks. They are my first pair of Panda Soy socks for myself! And my first pair of red hand-knit socks so I will be excited to wear them.

Now, I just need to finish my Tofutsies socks:

I want to finish these this week, so I can cast on a fun, new pair of socks during WWKIP day on Saturday, June 13th!

I like both pairs. Especially the Tofutsies. :-) I keep telling myself I'm going to participate in one of these mystery sock thingies, but I never seem to get around to it.
