Already the Vesper is calling my name

Even though I'm so happy with this sock I could cry, and am dying to finish the last little sprint of the other...I hear the Knit and Tonic calling my name...or maybe the Tartan...

Yarn is KPPPM in 315L, needle 2.5mm, pattern is Baby Cable Rib Socks from Sensational Knitted Socks. Though I got a little stir-crazy near the end (that's 26 pattern repeats you're looking at) I absolutely love how these fit and feel. I told Guitar Boy that I want all my socks made of Koigu from now on. That would be so heavenly, wouldn't it?

Those socks are gorgeous! I am making my first pair of socks (I just finished a Christmas Stocking, my first venture into sock knitting) and I am pumped about all the beautiful patterns I can use to make my socks beautiful.

Thanks, ladies! Silver, I've been following the progress of your Christmas stocking - great job! Can't wait to see your foray into socks - they are addictive!

Great looking socks - good color. Now if only I would teach myself to knit - and then tackle socks. What a wonderful world it would be.

Gorgeous!!! Koigu socks are so yummy... I'm knitting with Sundara right now, and thinking it's nearly as yummy...
