Finished socks - Mort

Last week I finished Mort socks, the sixth pair I have knit from Rachel Coopey's Discworld Sock Club. They were very pleasing socks, with a mirrored cabled pattern down the outside of each leg.

The other this that made these socks pleasing was the yarn / pattern combination. I dyed the yarn myself, and it came out the perfect colour for this project, a dark black with purple undertones which rather matches the description in the Discworld books of the colours of Death's garden. (If you haven't read the books, this won't make any sense to you. Go read them. Start at the beginning with The Colour of Magic). 
So now I'm halfway trhough knitting the socks from the Discworld sock club, six down, six more to go.
