Finally Farfalle

Farfalle socks 3

Why they took so long, I don't know.
Somehow I just kept getting distracted by other things (like this, this, this, this, this, this and this).

But now the Farfalle socks are officially done.

My inspiration came from Claudine's Little Cables Hat.
I loved the idea of cables not set off by purls.
The little staggered cables made me think of Farfalle pasta - even the color is is dead on Creamette.

The design is fairly simple. The hardest part was a little shifting to get the top of the foot centered and in line with the design on the leg. No real biggie.

Busy Bea was sharing her love of heels with a garter stitch border at just the right time in my progress, so a stockinette heel with a little garter stitch border it was.
I do love the way it hides any holes when you pick up stitches for the gusset.

(Ooops - I guess this is my best heel shot. You can just see the garter stitch peeking out.)

It was a new toe for me as well - a round toe (from Knitting Vintage Socks and many other places as well). It fits my foot so nicely and is so mathematically pleasing, I will certainly use it again.

My only problem with them... it's way to hot for wool right now!

My notes are almost written into a pattern.
I will post them someplace shortly.
