You Can't Stop My Heart From Turning Inside Out

STR Monsoon Socks

I'm expecting my April Rockin' Sock Club kit any day now, and just in time I've finished February's Inside Out socks. They've been close to finished for about a week, but I couldn't quite get them done AND get packed for the trip to LA, so they just came off the needles last night. I made a couple of modifications at the top of the leg cuff, which felt a little too loose and unfinished for me. I added about an inch of 1x1 rib, and used this tubular cast off for a prettier finish. Thanks to yoyogirl for the suggestion!

This is probably the most interesting sock pattern that I've knit, and I like they way they turned out. I'm a little concerned that they'll feel super bulky under socks due to the cabling, but since it will probably be months before I can really wear them I won't worry about it too much yet.

Beautiful work - I hear some of the club members received their kits today.

Love the ribbing - looks great! I'll try that if I knit the pattern again!

I got my kit yesterday - and boy when you open it, it will SO BE WORTH the wait!! :)

The ribbing at the top finishes off the socks perfectly. That's the only thing missing, and I plan to add it to my notes on the pattern! Great job!

Great job! You must have small feet like me. :)

They turned out great! You don't have any pooling like some did.
