Socks!


Remember that Shelridge Farm sock yarn and celtic braid pattern I got at Sheep and Wool? Well, sock one has been started. The pattern says the experience level is "with gusto". Perhaps it should be "with dexterity" instead. I've had a few near accidents as I try to manipulate the cable needle to make this awesome braid pattern.

This is the first sock I've made starting from the top down. I really like the toe-up method, but am intrigued to see how top-down works. So far it's not so bad, but I'll check back in once I get to the heel.

Making great progress! Have you tried cabling without the needle? (I find the extra needle slows me down.)

So cute. Hmm, June's words intrigue me. How do you cable without the needle? Must do web search.
