FO: Cable Lagoon Socks
Pattern: Cable Lagoon by Me (download PDF from sidebar)
Yarn: 1 skein of Malabrigo Sock yarn in Lettuce Colorway
Needles: US 1.5
Started: December 31, 2008
Finished: February 4, 2009
Comments: When I was gifted this lovely skein of yarn, it totally screamed Cable Socks. I then thought of the Cable Lagoon pattern would be perfect but would it work. The pattern was originally done in a thicker weight yarn. The Malabrigo is more on the thinner side and because of that I had to add extra purl stitches between the cables for a custom fit. So, in the end I adding an extra 8 stitches for a total of 80 around.
Love the yarn and would totally have stash full of this stuff. I can only see if they stand up to wear and wash over time.
I would just like to say the weatherman lied. Bright sun and talks of warming tempatures fooled me into believeing that I could run a quick photo shoot this morning. I don't think the tempature was above 0 this morning...and as my dearly departed Mother-In-Law would state, Colder then a Witches Tit!
