Apila Socks

I finally finished my Apila Socks in Noro Kureyon Sock. I really, really like the yarn! It's so much softer knitted up as a sock than it feels in the skein. And it's very warm.

These (horrid!) pictures were taken in the afternoon, no daylight in sight. I'll take better ones for the pattern (I'll write it down and post it here on the blog). I just had to show you right now! :)

This is the front.


Also the front, but off the foot.


And the back.
The pattern is really easy, and knits up fast. I added some ribbing on the sides to make them more comfortable and stretchy.

Nice! Can't wait for the pattern.

Seems like everybody who's tried the Noro sock yarn says the same thing, that it seems scratchy in the skein but is better knitted up. It's so nice to be able to get those comments from Blogs and Ravelry before spending the money myself, but I'm itching to make some Noro socks now!

oh, what a nice pattern! Great work. [may be you will allow me to translate it for Dutch knitters in the Dutch sock knitters kalgroup?]

This is just lovely! The cables and colors compliments eachother nicely. I'll have to pick up some Noro sock yarn when you write up the pattern!
