On The Needles - 3/8

I finally got to the toe decreases on my second sock and I have made a little more progress since getting there. You can see in the closer view that the stitches are just starting to cut in towards the center of the foot. Woo hoo!! The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll sock yarn.



I have been trying to decide on the pattern and yarn for the next pair of socks. As I mentioned last week, I want to try a patterned sock this time and I want to make cables and use a chart. I picked out the pink and brown yarn to use, but then I realized that the cables won't show up as well so I think that I am going to go with the brown to the left. It is Madelinetosh in Hickory and it will be a new experience for me to use this yarn as well. I am really branching out!


The yarn to the right is Palette by Knit Picks and it will be the yarn that I will use for the Infinity Cardigan. I remembered that I bought a kit from Knit Picks and I checked to see what the yarn was last night. I am going to use this yarn to knit a swatch to make sure of the size needles that I need for the cardigan. I am ready to start it without even trying the cabled socks!

And I have my eBook that I won. Here is a picture of the cardigan from the book. The book is a Knit Picks publication. I really love this sweater!!

I also should mention that when I was pulling out the kit, I was a little shocked to find another bag of sock yarn. I really need to get knitting!

I have a few balls of sock yarn just hanging out in the closet. Someday they will see the light of day!
Enjoy your new adventure with cables.

You'll love working with the Tosh! It's beautiful stuff! Just be careful when washing, some colors tend to bleed.

That looks like an interesting and challenging knit!
