I Feel Like A Cheater

Trek-Along With Me is off to a great start. There have been some beautiful pictures posted of scenery and socks. Some treks have taken place in the city, some on the beach and some in the wilderness. The one thing I've noticed that they all have in common though is that all the socks are in the very early stages of being knitted (or crocheted). Most people are casting on or still in the pattern selection process. There are a few socks that have been knitted past the cuff, but not many. So call me a cheater if you must, because my socks are finished. Obviously, most everyone assumed the start date was June 1. That part wasn't clear to me, so I asked and was told I could cast on anytime. So technically I didn't cheat, it just looks that way. Perhaps all will be forgiven when it's learned that this is just the first of two pairs I'm making for the trek-along. The first trek for these socks is planned for this weekend in Utah. I'll save the pattern details for then, but I will show you a sneak peek photo now.

Recognize the pattern? Any guesses? No cheating allowed.

  1. Oooo, you can show them off at SL when we take a Trek together. I had hoped that we could trek with matching socks but showing off a finished pair will be even more fun!
    Is that the Garter Rib from SS? I have it in mind for my next pair.

  5. I love the colors! Your sock is very beautiful and I am jealous that yours has moved beyond the cast on stage!

  8. Just read about your trek in Utah at Margene's -- it's perfect that your socks were completed for it! We don't use the word "cheating" around here. That you finished them and had a great time doing it and were able to take them on your Utah trek makes it all perfect. Now you have time to do another pair if you're so inclined!

  9. Beautiful! I really do like the stitch pattern, but don't have a clue as it what it is.
