FO: Aldershot

Yes - the Aldershot socks are done!
I am extremely please with how this pair turned out. The cables are satisfyingly twisty, without being too daunting to knit. And the twisted stitches down the side add a nice bit of easy-to-execute kick. I love that they don't slouch, despite not having ribbing at the cuff (I love it when it can be all design on the leg).

The yarn, Jungle Cat in Banana Popsicle, is so soft, and the yellow is such a nice shade for this time of year. Yellow always makes me smile!

So now it's onto a new sock. I really should get moving on another GO design, but I haven't knit Dave any socks in quite a while... and it would be nice to have something more mindless for travelling...

Decisions... decisions...
