Here are pics of my ultra-cool socks!

The other side – still no holes!

I’m hoping to get some time in this weekend to actually write up a pattern, but realistically it probably won’t get done until after the show.

Here’s what else is on the needles (or off in some cases):

These are almost done – I just have to finish weaving in the ends. I’m very happy with the way they came out.

All that remains is to sew the elastic together. We tried them on Z this afternoon and they look like they are a great fit – very trim.

Yes, more stripes. This time I’m being smarter about it and stopping to weave my ends in every so often.

This has a few firsts for me – my first real time cabling and the first time I’m using Lamb’s Pride yarn. I really like the yarn. It’s a single (one ply) made of 85% wool and 15% mohair, very soft and has a nice sheen to it. I’ve been wanting to do some fancy stitch work and since the sacque pattern has no short-rows in it, it was the perfect chance to try out cables. I still haven’t decided how I’ll end it – draw string, ribbing, or actual buttons. If you have an opinion, please let me know.
