FO Friday / Creative Friday

As promised, here some pics of the finished pair of socks. Unfortunately they are black, so it is almost impossible to see the cabling in the photos. Oh well, I can assure you it is there :-D
I haven't blocked these yet, so they will take on a nicer form later today :)
As mentioned on Wednesday, these were knitted to my "Simply Cabled Sox" Pattern which is a made as a photo tutorial. This pattern is available to purchase from my Craftsy shop:
I will be sharing my post over at Linda and Tami today, so head on over to look at what all the talented folk are up to.
Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi hannahw,

      Thanks. Did I mention these are men's socks? Now I am worried, too girly?

      Thanks for your visit.

    1. Hi Minding My Own Stitches,

      Thank you so much. Do you think they will be okay for a man? They don't look soooo starry in real life, I am guessing the flash just picks up the white specks more, but these socks are for a man - a farmer :-D can't be giving him girly socks, oh my what to do?

      Thanks for dropping past

  3. Natalie--I think that these socks would be suitable for a man or a woman! Black is the perfect color for everyday socks, and the cables and small flecks of white make them truly special! XXO-

    1. Hi Heather,

      Thank you so much.
      I must admit though, I did run to go and have another look at them! I love what the other two ladies said, and I totally agree with them, and if I was making them for my hubby I know he would totally appreciate them, but I think some men do have certain preferences and I was asked to make plain socks, but plain just sounded too boring, (the second pair is very plain!) so I thought I would knit them this way. Oh well, will let you know what the recipient says :D

      Have a super weekend
