FO: Anniversary Socks

anniversaryfo anniversaryfo2

I actually finished these socks sometime last week, but it wasn't until the weekend that I had time and daylight to get photos. (Who knew that graduating takes so much work??)

This pattern is Anniversary Socks by Nancy Bush, which I knit and loved once before, and always meant to make again. This time, I used one of my favorite yarns, Ella Rae Lace Merino, and bumped up the stitch count a bit. I've knit four pairs of socks from the Lace Merino now, and although it's not the hardiest yarn I've ever used, it makes for a wonderfully soft and delicate sock. I find the extra darning is worth the prettiness.

And honestly, these particular socks are so beautiful that I wouldn't mind having a drawer full of them!

These are beautiful! Love how delicate the cables are. Going to knit my first ever socks this year, it's been decided! :) x
