The Oden socks are done. They were very satisfying to knit, and I am very pleased with how they’ve turned out.
I find patterned socks go quite quickly, because I want to keep seeing the repeats forming. In fact, it was very hard to put these down, and I was a bit sad when they were finished because I missed knitting them. I might have to knit another pair!!
With the cable only on the front, and double ribbing for the rest of the sock, they were very quick to knit. I especially liked the double rib slip stitch heel. I haven’t done this style of heel before, and I enjoyed the look of it.
The yarn, Cromwell, by Verandah Yarns, is a supertwist 100% merino sock yarn, spun in New Zealand. It met my expectations for this pattern perfectly!
The young boy says the Oden socks look like a Celtic wood carving. I think he is quite right!
