Celtic Braid Socks - Complete



The Knitting Gods were smiling on me today! I'd forgotten that ribbing and cables really eat up yarn & boy did this hold true for this pattern. Upon completion I had only 26" (out of a 360 yd skein) of yarn left over! Can't cut it much closer than that!

Gory Details:

Pattern: Celtic Braid Socks by Cabin Fever

Yarn: Socks That Rock Lightweight

Colorway: Oregon Red Clover Honey

Needles: Knit Picks, Size 2 (2.75mm) - Magic Loop

Cast On: June 4, 2008 (Oregon Coast)
Cast Off: June 16, 2008 (San Diego)

Euro 2008 Update: Germany 2nd in Group B - moves on to face Portugal in Quarterfinals. Michael Ballack scored the winning & only goal today (swoon!)
