First up, the cable sock is coming along. Now that I have three or four (or maybe five) projects going at once, I'm only committing to one row a day on the sock. That'll get me where I'm going, just not at a fast pace, which is fine. I realized I forgot my cable needle this weekend, but following the advice of The Husband (who taught me to knit way back when), I used a small steel crochet hook instead, and it worked fine, with only a smidgen of angst thrown in.
|The pooling isn't quite so obvious in person, I don't think. This thing feels great, even in 70% humidity.|
|Each motif is taking me about an hour. So far I've managed about one a day, but I doubt I can keep up that pace.|
|And I bought starch for the first time in my life! Yikes. I'll test it out on the pineapple when I finish the edging (which is boring, which is why I'm still not done).|
|The first repeat. It's hard to get good lighting.|
|A better shot of the pattern. It looks so much more complicated than it is.|
|This is dark but gives a better idea of the colors.|
