Cable and Rib Socks

I just finished ONE of the Cable and Rib Socks and LOVE the way it turned out...

This sock MAY OR MAY NOT have it's mate knit by me as I first made it with the intention of giving it to my Sock Swap Pal and in this swap, we knit one sock and then send the yarn and pattern to our pal for them to knit the other.

PATTERN: Based on Cable Rib Socks by Erica Alexander from Interweave Knits’ Favorite Socks Book - adjusted size of cable and rib and modified when I changed the needles.

YARN: Hello Yarn Fat Sock Yarn in Surface colorway

NEEDLES: Size 1 for the foot and Size 2 for the heel and cuff

TIME to COMPLETE: Started Easter weekend while traveling, finished 6 days later, Friday morning, April 13, 2007

NOTES: If I were to do the sock over again, I would knit the heel in Size 1 needles — but overall, I think the sock turned out very well. I based the sock on the Cable Rib Socks and modified the size of the rib and cables to accomadate the colorway of the yarn. I enjoy the pooling of the colors in the foot and the striping at the cuff.

You can read more details of this at my blog.

This weekend is to be a weekend of FOs! I plan to finish a few more items to add to my FOs page. Wish me luck!! LOL!
