The sock that was

The Cable Net sock? I realized that it was going to be a bit too big. And if I'm going to spend so much time on socks, I want them to fit like gloves. Gloves for my feet. So I frogged it and I'm going to make the small size. I'm starting to really enjoy the pattern anyways so I don't mind starting over.

Tara asked if I'm cabling without a cable needle and the answer is yes. Actually, the way this sock is written, you don't need a cable needle. (Check it out, you'll understand what I mean).

I received my Knitpicks catalog yesterday and while browsing the book section, I found this:

Details here, but the title is quite self-explanatory. Let's just say it's an interesting idea for a knitting book... :)

I'd be so afraid to drop stitches without a cable needle!

That book looks totally cute...! I may check it out when it comes out at the end of the month!

Hope all is well!

I just asked about the cable needle thing because I only just learned myself, and am pretty pleased with myself, thank you very much. and I noticed that book too! Not sure if I would get it though ;)

I'm both impressed and slightly appalled by that book!

Caroline - if we're going to knit along the Cardi for Merry - we should really exchange email addies. Is this the right venue for that? Can you see my email when I comment to you????

Hey again! I've tagged you for a meme on my blog. Feel free to tell me to take a leap. It's my first meme, so I thought I'd be a joiner. Re Cardigan KAL. Why don't we set up a group on Ravelry?
