March Sock

These are the socks I currently have on my needles. I had an eye on the pattern for a long time and finally got a chance to try it. It has an interesting construction and I think, is gorgeous. Only drawback is that it was a mystery pattern at Sock Knitter's Anonymous of two years past and is available in their thread and not like a separate pattern. On the designer's blog too, it is not in a complete pattern format. But charts are fairly easy to understand.

The yarn is Lana Grossa Meilenweit 50 cotton which I got in a RAK last month. My only concern is the sizing. Although it seems snug enough, I still worry about it being on the larger side.
I am really enjoying knitting right now, mashaAllah, because of my wonderful WIPs_ these socks and two projects from Coatimundi KAL.


  1. That's really a special pattern, probably worth all the trouble to plow through the multi-part pattern.

    I tend to find with cotton sock yarn I have to go down a needle size. Mine tend to come out large, and cotton's lack of springiness (even in a blend) doesn't help. Your socks do have cables and such, so that may draw them in as you go along.

  2. I think they are stunning! I've really liked that pattern too, it is very intricate.

  3. Those are going to be GORGEOUS!

  4. I love the design, can't wait to see it finished!

  5. These are such a pretty pattern! I'm looking forward to seeing them finished also.
