The Vanquished Hero

The Hero socks are FINALLY done!!!! It only took seven months..... glad to see the back end of this project.

Don't get me wrong - the pattern is great. The design is amazing, the instructions are well-done. It was just so darn tedious!
I love the way cables look, but I'm not a big fan of cabling. Sadly, the next pair of socks I want to make are cabled too...
Anyway, back to these socks. They were knit in Top Cat. The colour is Cohiba and it's one of Mom's amazing  creations. A lovely cigar brown with hints of bluish-grey. She does amazing work when she just lets herself play.

The Top Cat, of course, is stupidly soft. It's a good thing these are way too big for me - otherwise I'd be keeping them. Next up on the knit list is the Lady Cornwall shrug - I brought the yarn home today. It's a lovely chocolate brown (House Cat)... so it appears I've got a bit of a theme going.

Great looking socks!! I certainly admire the tedious work that went into the cabling. Wow. The color of the yarn is just perfect for this pattern. Well done!!!

Great socks! Maybe they took so long because they're so long! Dave better love them!
