Laying there asleep in a sunbeam,

I wonder if you realize you fascinate me so…

Excuse the bright purple–it really was laying there alseep in a sunbeam. But! The Eleanora sock is finished, and packed away in a box with some goodies to send to a super-nice friend. Jacob may have helped with some of the goodies, but he’s not telling what they are.

Speaking of super-nice friends, Stacey is the very best one. Seriously, people.

Have you ever seen something so beautiful?

It warms my heart and my feet. Thanks so much, Stacey.

And folks, I totally needed the warming. Tangled Yoke is driving me crazy. There’s (sadly) zero chance that I will be done with this thing by November 1, although I might get it done for the weekend. The cable rows are taking for-freaking-EVER, and I had to do some cable repair surgery twice today. I feel completely stupid, because the cables are honestly pretty easy and nobody else seems to be having trouble, but those long rows and all of the counting is killing me.

Woof. Guess I just had to get that off my chest. At least I’ll be done with the cable section tonight. Off I go, to knit rows 17 and 18!

  1. Those Eleanora’s Socks are beautiful! I first saw them over at Hello Yarn and I’ve already added them to my Ravelry queue. Gorgeous! Great color too. Sorry to hear the TYC is giving you a hard time… I am no where near the cabled yoke yet, so I don’t know your pain yet. Hope it’s smooth sailing from here on out for you!

  2. those socks are fantastic and you could be giving Stacy a run for her money in the very-best-super-nice-friend department!

  3. Eleanora is beautiful, but what is the pattern that Stacy made for you?

  4. WOW! What a beautiful sock!!!!

  5. Awesome. Both ways.

    I cannot. wait. to see that cable all done!

  6. Lovely, lovely, single socks! Love the photo of your bare foot and Stacey’s sock – your nail polish matches the sock’s colour.

  7. The sock is stunning! Mmmm… I wonder what you guys were making… Stacey’s sock for you is really beautiful – great color, too! What a fun exchange : )

    Sorry Tangled Yoke is harassing you so badly — is there any way you can use stitch markers (lots of them, maybe) to help with the counting?

  8. You are not the only one having trouble with the TYC cable rows! I have had to re-work at least three of mine, including the first decrease row which is just beyond stupid. I blame it on the unrelenting longness of the rows too!

  9. Gorgeous socks!

  10. Proof that one beautiful sock deserves another! Yay in both directions.

    I have to do cable repair a lot! Even on the simple ones…

  11. Your sock and Stacey’s are so pretty! Wow on both!

  12. I love the Eleanora pattern. I mucked it up royally because I was Knitting While Pregnant and…well… no need to go into details. (It has something to do with Opal vs Gems Opal and the disasters of gauge. Anyway…) My point is that yours makes me want to pick up the pattern and have another go at it.

  13. Yep, I’m definitely in love with that pattern. You and strikker sold me. 🙂 And lucky you to be the recipient of Stacey’s sock! She’s such a kickass sock knitter!

  14. both the sock you made and the one you received are beautiful. i sent my sock off monday and i’m hoping my pal likes it.

  15. Beautiful sock. You did an amazing job!

  16. Some seriously pretty socks in this post.

  17. That is one work-of-art sock!

  18. wow! two such gorgeous socks, so hard to pick a favorite. what pattern is the sock from stacey? all these pictures are tempting me to take up sock knitting! (i think i did my last sock when i was 12… =/) *back to lurking*

  19. yay! i’m so glad it fits!!!! 🙂

  20. Don’t feel bad. I had a horrid time with that cable, too. Even though it was so simple, I just couldn’t wrap my head around it.

    It happens 🙂
