Cheerful "Cable My Big Toe" Socks are Complete!
I cannot believe I forgot to show off my latest socks! These are my cheerful new socks. The pattern is called "Cable My Big Toe" and it's found in the "Sock Yarn: One Skein Wonders Book" that I got awhile back. This was my second effort with this pattern. On the first go around I could not adjust to the small needles and the number of stitches in each round. The socks are knit on US size 1 (2.25 mm) needles and there are 72 stitches per round. While that is a small, tight knit and a lot of stitches, it creates a very nice fabric and a terriffic fitting sock on my feet. It's not that easy to see but there is a cleft between the big toe and the remaining toes so one can wear these socks with flip flops (when I was growing up, we called these sandals "thongs"). I love my socks! I actually wore them to my knitting group with my flip flops last Thursday. I felt a little silly but I LOVED showing off my latest socks! I can see myself making these socks again.
