Those socks just sneak up on you.

Somehow I managed to get through 1.5 socks without posting an official photo. True, there was a partial glimpse of sock #1 a couple of weeks ago, but this pair has mostly stayed hidden. So, I decided to remedy the situation by exposing them shamelessly now.

Pattern: Whitby, from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road.
Yarn: 3 skeins of Artyarns Supermerino, colour #247. The socks started as some light stashbusting, but then I realized I was going to run out of yarn so it ended more as stash topping-off, or equalizing, or something.
Needle size: 2.75 mm.

Progress has been a bit slow, not because of the socks themselves but because I also knitted a couple of very small things for a very small relative--namely, my niece-to-be, due in January. At least, I think my brother said the baby would be a girl. The colour might work for a boy though.

Those socks look great! I really like the cables and the shine of that yarn. Very nice!
