The blue one is a Cookie A pattern, Clandestine.
It is a challenging lace pattern and I love it!
I can't wait to finish the pair.
The leg goes on forever! 7 inches of delightful lace :-)
The pink one is Business Casual, and I turned the heel on the second sock last night.
I should have a working pair by Friday!
The Business Casual sock is single cables, but I worked
them as twisted stitches. It is much faster and the result is a
little neater I think. There are lots of ways to work twisted stitches, but I
like the way Alice Yu works them in her Farmer McGregor socks,
so that is how I did mine. It is very similar to this technique, only
for a left twist Alice slips both stitches one at a time knitwise,
and then passes them back to the left needle. This makes it
easier to knit through the back loop of the stitches.
My knitting attacked me so many times on this sock.
I had to do major surgery during my gusset decreases.
I got all confused by the cables and my stitch count was
off -- major Fiasco! It still has a wonky hole, but I
cheated and sewed it up afterwards.
I am the boss of my knitting!
They make such a cute pair :-)
