Aran Braid Socks

Finished! These were travel/karate knitting so they took a bit longer, but they were worth the wait!

The toe is rounded on this pattern. Love how they fit!
(I really do have an arch on my left foot, just not sure where it went for this picture)
Aran Braid Socks- Pattern from Knit Picks. Knit with Knit Picks Bare on 2 Knit Picks 16" 1's

The pattern is a nice reversible cable that is easy to memorize. I only do 5" cuffs and have small feet so there may be enough left over for another pair! If I had been thinking (right!) I would have made the cuff longer to take advantage of the reversible pattern. Maybe next time!

Too cute! I've got to knit those puppies - and I love the tweedy bare yarn. Haven't knit with any of the Knit Picks sock yarn - how does it compare?

ohhhh....ahhhh....The socks are beautiful. I love the pattern. It looks like a happy, rhythmic knit. Are these your first socks from this yarn? I have been debating the KnitPicks bare so I can try some dying....

As always, you do beautiful work. Am I the only that is still fascinated that a knitted toe can look roundy/pointy and still fit so beautifully?
