FO: Mystery Machine Socks

I have a finished object for you today! These are the Mystery Machine Socks by Ariel Altaras. The pattern is a US$5.00 download and can be found on Ravelry here.

These are a fingering (4 ply) weight sock with ribbing, lace and cables. I love them! My Ravelry notes are here.

I knit them from some hand-dyed sparkle Blue Faced Leicester wool. It was lovely to work with even though I don’t really like orange or sparkly yarn! 😉 BFL wool is one of my favourites that I’ve tried so far to work with.

I was a little irked by a purl line that is on one sock not the other but it’s not a big deal overall. The pattern was great, mostly very well written. The charts were in an odd position and I had to keep flipping back an forth over a few pages between the instructions and the chart but I suppose that can’t be helped. There were a couple of points when the charts transitioned from the full diamond lace pattern to the decreases to add in the ribbing again that I found a bit mystifying but I muddled through and I’m really pleased with the result. 🙂

Thanks for reading!
