The first of Chuck's


A quick update on my Chuck’s cabled socks: the first sock is almost finished. I have knitted the cuff and the heel on 2,5 mm needles, and the rest on 3 mm needles, much bigger needles than what I usually use for this yarn. But the cables drag the stitches together, and this way will the socks be wide enough. The pink toes will most likely be knitted on 2,5 mm. The yarn is Schoeller+Stahl’s Fortissima socka, in grey and pink. The socks will be for my older daughter, but the size would fit me too.


I'm glad to see your take on these. I have the pattern but haven't decided on yarn and colour yet. Looking forward to your progress!

OMG, Maud, your knitting skillss are beyond amazing! I would never have the patience to even attempt those socks in 2 colors. Good job!

Noista tulee mahtavat!

They are looking lovely! I definitely have to knit those someday.

These are marvelous!! Love the colors too. Eunny is quite the designer and it takes a skilled knitter for those socks.

Very nice socks, the colours are good together.

Those look great so far! Thanks to Mel, I've added those to my list of knits this year too. I like thinking big :)...now I at least need to finish my first pair of socks before tackling those!

Wow! That's so nice!

åhhh... disse var bare helt nydelige

Wow, I am very impressed with those socks. Lucky girl, your daughter.

Hurray!!! Chuck's! Are you enjoying knitting them? Once I got the sizing down, they were one of the most fun knits I've done. I'm so happy to see your pair in progress!

I can't wait to see them!!

Tuleepa kauniit sukat! Tuokin on kyllä aivan upea malli.

Lovely sock! You seem to have a really pretty model of your own... I meant he shawl pictures above this post. :)
