Staked - One Sock Down

I do love socks with intricate stitch patterns and the fine cables of Staked are perfect. However, since their intricacy requires me to actually keep my eyes glued to the instructions, the socks take a while to finish. In the end it is definitely worth it, but this is not a pair that I can finish in three days or so.
Sock number one is done, though! Sock number two is under way as well, but I am in no hurry to finish as long as it looks good when it is done. The first sock fits well at the foot, but somehow I managed to make the CO a bit too tight. Yikes! I hope it will give with time. The material is just as amazing as I expected it to be, the yarn is nice and smooshy, and the colours are fantastic. Can't wait to wear them!
