I love the new Interweave knits, especially the Toe Up Sock Project on page 60. I am so into cable knitting at the moment, probably because of the afghan squares I've been knitting for charity. I want to knit Ambrosia, Honeycomb and Flying Buttress first, followed by the rest! Terrific patterns, not to mention I adore anything that Ann Budd designs! If I hosted a KAL would anybody come?
I finally got up the gumption to start the final square, and although it seemed a little complex in the beginning, by the third row it was smoother sailing! I am a strong believer in using Posties to mark my place in patterns of this sort. I also am getting very comfortable cabling without a cable needle! Not hard to do at all I discovered!
I like the look of this square, and these bobbles seem less labor intensive than previous ones-just k, p, k, p, k in the same stitch, turn, knit back on the 5 loops, turn, purl back on the 5 loops and then pass the 2Nd, third, 4Th and 5Th stitches one at a time to the left over the 1st stitch on your right needle.
Slipper socks for a small child made for charity from donated yarns and buttons from my collection. Easy and gratifying at the same time!
So, how is your week going?
