Making Waves

The making waves sock from the 6 sox along is coming along swimmingly. I've got half of the first sock done, despite the fiddlyness of the dpns and a cable needle at the same time. I have to look into other cable needles. The one I have is too long and too fiddly, especially for making cables on socks.

I am amazed, as are my coworkers, that this can be turned into this. The colors in the pic with the skein are much closer to real life than the WIP pic. I couldn't get an accurate pic of the sock in progress. Nor could I get a closeup of the pattern on the sock. Oh well.

I've come to the conclusion that I like working on small needles more than I like working on larger needles. I like the fact that things fly off larger needles, but I get more satisfaction on stuff made on 2s and 3s. I think that's why I like socks so much. Ok, problems, I know.

I got my Knitty secret pal today in email. I'm excited! Can't wait to send stuff. Must. Go. Shopping. :)

Yikes, Karen..I just read about your fall down the stairs. Are you ok? Hope you're not feeling sore today. Thank goodness you didn't hurt your least with a sore butt you have an excuse to sit and knit all day. :)

Those socks are great! I want to try the Lorna's Laces, too. Where on the socks are the cables?
