FO - cheshire cat socks

A bit of a 'vintage' FO as I finished it ages ago. It just took a while for the pattern to go up and me to get round to linking to it - here it is (WARNING: links to pdf).

A (cheshire) cat. He hides, you seek. Go on. You know you want to knit some. Because everybody needs a pair of kitty-illusion socks where the feline appears and disappears as you point your toes and the tail twists itself leisurely up your leg.

For Purlescence's luxurious style, I used cashsoft, so have given them leather patches on the soles (for slipper socks), but the pattern would work just as well in a more hard-wearing sockyarn.

Thanks to Robynn for her great competition which inspired the project and Kirsty for acting as legs model for the pics.

I love love love these socks. I'm a big time lurker, but I had to come out of hiding to let you know. I've found a Christmas gift for my sister. Thanks!

I am madly in love with these socks. I can't think of something more fitting to depict with illusion knitting than the Cheshire Cat.

Very cool! (also, I just finished an Exchequered scarf, and thank you very much for that pattern, it is most keen)

I am so excited about these sox! I love them. Adore them. I have started them. I chose bright pink and purple. I love illusion knitting and have never seen it on sox. I love striped sox. What a beautiful way to join the 2. Kudos!

Thank you for this pattern! I've been looking for a while for a pair of striped socks to knit for my best friend that aren't so boring I'll never finish them. And this is perfect because one of her cats is grey and the other is black, so I'm knitting a complementary pair for her in black and grey :-)
