Yahoo, I got the Crossing Cables Socks pattern from Danny Ouellette earlier this week.
After flipping through the pattern, it looks like it will be worth the wait. While I might have eventually done it on my own, I can now clearly see that it would have taken a while. I was on the right track but hadn’t yet figured out how to strategically place the cables between purl stitches.
The pattern is five pages long, includes several charts and has a very professional look. I don’t think Danny has spared any details.
Although I’m diligently working to finish Gilet Lace, I couldn’t resist working on a swatch of the Mountain Colors Bearfoot yarn that I’ll be using for the socks. This 3-ply yarn is a pleasure to knit. I’ve decided to follow the pattern and use 3mm needles, but I’m usually inclined to use a smaller sized needle to get tighter stitches when making socks. This time I’ll stick to the larger needles to avoid making socks that will be too small for the recipient.
