Intriguing. I don't dare start them now though. I'll never finish all the other stuff on the needles in time if I do.


Yea! You did it! Congrats on getting the first piece out!


Sounds like fun! But -- is it me, or what, I would have called those cables the opposite of what you have called them.


I don't need another project, but this one is certainly tempting! Especially since I didn't do the mystery stole. Hmm... Is it time to go stash diving?


I was curious, I have never used a chart for sock knitting. Under the chart you mention, knitting the chart on even rows, and purling on odd rows, if we a knitting in around, magic loop style would it not be knit on off rows? Thought I better ask before I cast on.


Oh geesh to early in the morning here, I just re-read the instructions and seen the knit the knit and purl the purl stitches. Sorry about that. Answered my own question, lol. Can't wait for part 2.


Hi Maia, this mystery sock looks like fun...now I have to decide if I can get TWO pairs of socks done this month, plus a case and sweater for my wife...decisions, decisions!


This is great fun! My first mystery anything. But I too have a question about knitting the even rows. What to do with the k2tog and yo etc, are they to be purled or knitted? I tried both and maybe it doesn't matter?? Thanks for the FUN!


Mystery socks...that sounds like fun :) Wish I was a little more proficient at sock knitting (and chart reading - I not very good at that!)...maybe someday?


Ooh, cool. And such an intriguing name. doesn't look loike they ahve pointy toes, tho. I'll play.


I love the pattern and the yarn is really nice, too!



Cast these on right away. Absolutely scrumtious! Now to cast on #2. Had no trouble at all with the chart and it whizzed right along. Your work and the provided links to so many great sites makes your blog one of my favorites. Thanks for this new pattern, and I will be patiently waiting on part two.


Oh, how I wish I had some solid sock yarn lying around! I don't have anything that wouldn't obscure the pattern completely.


I'm having some problems with the make 1 purl increases ... or maybe it's my stitch counts ... would you be able to contact me? Anyone who has time to help would be appreciated!!! phoenix_anew@hotmail.com
