Zigzag Socks

I have made a bit of progress on Frost Flowers and Leaves, but I'll wait to show you until I switch to a longer cable so I can spread it out. For now, I decided I really wanted to finish my almost-finished zigzag socks. So I did.

Here's a close-up:

They're not quite as long in the leg as I like my socks to be, but I made the toe-up and got the absolute most I could out of the yarn. I might have gotten a few more rounds if I had tried, but not many.
Anyway, the specs:
Pattern: I used the zigzag pattern from page 105 of Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Sock Book, but to my own basic toe-up pattern
Needle size: my usual 0s
Yarn: Lang Yarns Jawoll in purple

I have some new socks started, but I only have the cuff. My oldest is not subtle. The other day, she sighs heavily, "I wish I had some warm, wooly socks to keep my feet warm." So I have two small pair I need to make.

Very pretty. And they look like they might be nice and stretchy, too...

Hahaha! My mom used that exact method of sock-wheedling on me. It worked or her.

Those zigzags look nice and pillowy.

They look nice! I've always had enough of Jawoll though. I'm surprised the legs are short. Although I guess mostly I've knit lacey ones with it I guess.

When we were kids, my mom used to say, "Subtle as a freight train," when we invariably were a little heavy handed.

Love the socks! Do you like that book? My local bookstore doesn't have it, and both my LYS's have recently closed.

Not subtle, but isn't it nice she wants to wear your knitted creations? Enjoy it while you can.
