With the Winters Frost socks off the needles (thank you for all the lovely comments – the day I posted we got hammered with snow, so I finished them just in time!), I had nothing else on the needles. At all!
That just won’t do. And with Valentine’s Day just a few short weeks away, I really should be motoring on a pair of socks for Dave. It’s pretty standard that I give Dave a pair of socks for V-day (and some jelly beans and jujubes). So now….
… that’s just what I’m doing. The pattern is Walking with Emma. It’s a nice, unisex, cabled sock pattern with four different variations in the pattern. I’m doing variation C. The yarn is some Alley Cat BFL I dyed up in man colours for Dave a while ago (last year I think, but it might have been the year before). AS you can see it’s a lovely mix of blues. I worried it might be a touch too busy for the cables. I tried it on his Petty Harbour socks last year, and it was definitely too much for them.
But it’s not too bad here. And those cables will pop even more when stretched out on his leg and foot. Now I’ve got about 18 days to finish them. It will be tight, but I’m pretty sure I can do it!

Love the color of the yarn and that pattern looks great! I have no doubt you will finish in time!!
I do enjoy a pair of textured socks! Nice job.
I really like that blue yarn and the pattern seems to be working very well with it. I need to get some socks on the needles too, They’ve bee empty for awhle and that just won’t do.
The small cables are perfect for the leg of the sock and for that gorgeous blue yarn.
Walking with Emma is beautiful Val! Love when a shaded yarn pops the stitches. I regret working patterns into wild sock yarn. Then losing the “effect”
That yarn is such a beautiful color and I love the pattern. Betting you will make your deadline.
Another outstanding pair of socks-to-be!
Any of my black or dark blue socks seem boring now…
Love your Winter’s Frost socks, Dave’s are going to be very nice, and adore the Queen!!! You have been busy.
