Socks are of those those knit items that I get the itch to knit every now and again. And I have to scratch that itch by knitting a pair. I have that itch now, and I’m getting ready to cast on a pair.
First, I need yarn, I chose this yarn from KnitPicks. I generally like their products, and since this yarn is washable, I’m all for it. The color is called Sprinkle Heather, which a blue/violet.
Next, I need a pattern. I love the look of cables on socks, but I am not a fan of constantly struggling with a cable needle on a project this delicate. So, I found the Faux Cable Socks pattern by Jen Lucas on Ravelry. It looks like my sort of pattern, and that solid color of yarn I chose should be lovely.
As soon as that yarn gets here, I’ll print out the pattern and start knitting. Hopefully, I won’t get “second sock syndrome” and have a nice new pair of socks to show off in a month or so.
