Or better not. Just let me enjoy they're finished...

La Digitessa - 100%

I finally finished my "La Digitessa" socks (ravelry pattern link) on a 7hrs drive yesterday. All has been said about the pattern when I finished sock #1, I only could add another ♥ for it...

The Wollmeise yarn is soft and beautiful as I'm used to and the pattern - though demanding indeed - is really wonderful to work with. Yarnissima did great work (Thank you!).

I was struggling hard how to present those socks right, but I didn't find a good way. Too many lovely details, and I just wasn't able to make pictures that capture everything. In spite of not having pretty pics, here's a shot of the socks laid out flat and an additional shot of the X-wise crossing cuff pattern, which I mirrored for the second sock to achieve a "V"-shape when worn.
The socks weren't blocked, so they look a different... in the pictures, but they are absolutely adorable when worn, trust me on that one!

Now... Enjoy a sunny sunday afternoon!
