Gone all twisty....

Thank you for all your sock pattern suggestions. I loved them all and my Ravelry queue is even longer now!

As I was looking at them, I realized something. I don't have any cabled socks! I love cables... so how can that be?

And then I discovered Another Faery!

So I cast on last night:

Here's a close up of it.
I am modifying the pattern a bit, but I'll show you more on that at a later date. The yarn I'm using is our Stray Cat (sport weight superwash merino) colour is "Brown Sugar n Spice. It is a repeatable colour, and since many of you have remarked on it on Ravelry, I'll try to get some done up for the shop.

The Stray Cat is perfect for cables as it gives absolutely stunning stitch definition - it makes me want to make a cabled cardigan out of it. The sport weight yarns knits up nice and quick (well, quicker) and I'm already on the gusset of the first sock.

Because of the impending job switch, I am no longer on the event committee at work... that means more evenings to knit (and blog!) for me!!! This pair will be done in no time!

Very pretty! And add my vote to the others - the brown sugar is lovely and would almost certainly be a hit in the shop!

I hope when you get all settled in Mississauga that you get to have a hockey game with Hurricane Hazel, lol! She's the coolest mayor in Canada if not the world, lol, 90 years young and still going!
