I purchased this sock yarn (click picture for a closer view) for my mother on mother’s day and promised to make her a pair of socks that she could wear this fall.
Earlier this week I came across this crossing cables pattern and placed an order for the PDF file. Well the payment went through but I didn’t get the PDF and the person behind the web site hasn’t responded to my e-mail.
Hopefully I get response soon. If not, I just might have to figure out the pattern myself. After a little searching I found that the same stitch pattern was used in “Wall Street Cables” from Arans & Celtics and according to Jon’s Knitting Blog (via EarthaKnits), it’s also in Harmony Guide 220 Aran Stitches.
Here’s a better picture of the sock on RedBirdKnits.com, which was knit in Wollywasch Tweed.
My mom needs something to cheer her up, look what happened my parent’s business this week. At least everyone in my family is ok and my dad is taking it well. Despite feeling awful for my folks, this other article did put a smile on my face.
