Autumn In The Air and Staggered Cables

Beautiful golden days on the East Coast of the brisk cool air and the colors all around are intense. Raking leaves and the sound of crackling of leaves somehow makes me very at ease and peaceful. Love it! Golfed yesterday and was one of the best days to be out on the course. Just makes me want to go out and play another round...but then working on the staggered cable sock and has gotten me to think that this one might be worth putting down on paper! Love this pattern and doing it in an ice aqua color. Every 5th row alternates with a cable on each rib. Interesting and lends to a spiral effect. I'll post when I am finished.

Cable Patterns

Today went to the bookstore to browse the knitting books. Looking for a small book that just has cable patterns. Small enough to just carry around with me so I can try out new cable patterns. Wish someone would tell me if they have seen anything like this.

Etsy Treasury

Today my Lacy Winoma Socks were featured in

Really nice to be included in an artisan's treasury collections...helps to get my shop a little publicity. And it has been a good month...sold 4 pairs of socks and am knitting a custom order this week! How fast can I knit????
