A Friendly Warning About Cabled Socks

Teenage Daughter wore the Owlie Socks with a pair of boots last weekend and she tells me that when she took them off at the end of the day, she had cabled owls embossed into her legs for the next few hours. Oops! I wish there was a picture so I could see if was really as dramatic as it sounded.

I'm going to ask around on the knitting lists and see if blocking might loosen them up a bit, otherwise they're destined for the sewing room wall.

Hmmm, guess Teenage Daughter wasn't thrilled with her temporary leg art?

Maybe the boots played a larger part of this puzzle than you might think. I've always found that a coarser knit, which hand knit would be, leaves more of an imprint. I'm sorry to hear the socks may be destined for the sewing room wall when you spent hours and hours knitted them.
