Cables and Corrugations
You mean you don't remember when I started these in October? And then got distracted by many many other shiny things til these socks got lost in the bottom of the knitting bag, to the extent that one of the needles can out of the sock and I didn't even notice?
It's not that I don't like the pattern...I do...it's from the new (ok, not so new) Cat Bordhi book. The sock construction is really elegant. I think the problem was thus: the pattern lures you into thinking it is 'mindless' knitting and it isn't until you forget to cross a cable or do a row in purl that should have been in knit that you realize that the sock is quite flawed in its execution (lovely to look at, but flawed all the same).
The yarn..from Zen Yarn Garden...is lovely.
So anyway, that's the story of the socks. Onward!
Sheila gifted me with the "You Make My Day" award! Thanks Sheila! I need to gift ten other bloggers who make my day (week/month/year); it will take me a while to winnow the list down to ten!
