Anastasia's Non-Christmas Cacti


Well, these were supposed to be socks that I could wear for Christmas, but I didn't put the pressure on myself. So now they are just simply socks to wear anytime. Who needs an occasion to wear these ones, though?

Pattern: Anastasia by Pepperknits

Yarn: Emily Parson's Sophie's Toes in Christmas Cactus colorway

Needles: One 47" Addi Turbo circular (I'm really loving doing socks on these!)

Mods: The only mod that I made was to knit the cuff in 2x2 ribbing for 1 1/2". There was no need to make any other mods since the pattern is perfect as is. :)

I love them! They are gorgeous! That pattern is in my queue. Now I think I'll have to make those for the next month. :)

Thanks, everyone. I highly recommend trying out the pattern on a yarn that you won't get too frustrated with if you have to frog multiple times. In my case (and this says more about me than the pattern), it took me a couple of tries before I "got" a couple of parts about the pattern. It is a fabulous knit, though. And of course, Sophie's Toes is one of my fav yarns. ;)
