Clessidra Socks


I LOVE these socks! They fit perfectly, the cables are gorgeous, and they were a lot of fun to knit.


What I think is really funny about them is that I went to Catholic Schools growing up, and while I generally liked the uniforms OK, I hated knee length navy blue socks. So what do I knit? Knee-length navy blue socks. Of course, the ones I had growing up weren't nearly this pretty.

These are knit from KnitPicks Gloss. It's not really a true navy blue, it's lighter and lovelier. I would heartily recommend this yarn for a variety of uses. It's soft, seems sturdy, and has a nice sheen without being too shiny. I kind of want to knit a sweater with it now. So pretty!
