House of Cards Special: March Socks are Done!

I just couldn’t wait for the new season of House of Cards. Frank and Claire, it has been just too long without you! Luckily for me Netflix posted the new season just in time for me to cast on my New Year’s resolution March 2015 socks. Yeah! I knitted through all of the episodes over the last week and last night I finished off the toe of the last sock with some Kitchener stitch, put them on my feet and watched the end of the season (and all the big reveals) with about 30 minutes to spare. I don’t want to be a spoiler, so I’m not going to say anything about the show other than to say that Claire definitively needs some knitwear. Good grief, don’t you think that it would be nice to let the First Lady wear a nice cardigan or even a pair of knitted socks on occasion? Isn’t she entitled to some cushy joy in the breaks between campaign stops? Just saying…

Here are my socks. These are definitely cushy joy on the hoof. 🙂

Look at those cables. These are socks that you can love for a long time.

and here’s the flat view. I wasn’t sure I would like the cables on my foot, but they are really comfy in my shoes. There is a lot of stretch and give in the socks which makes them really non-restrictive.

    1. It’s all Frank and Claire’s fault they finished quickly. Nothing spees knitting like drama!

      Thanks all for the nice feedback. I cast on another pair with the runner-up yarn today. March is still young after all. 🙂
