Either way, I'm joining Ginny's Yarn Along now that I'm home from work.
I've gotten quite a bit done on my Cadence socks in the past week. I even knit an extra repeat of the first chart (this pattern has three charts) in order to make the leg portion a little longer--I'm planning to use these as boot socks under my dressage boots--and I'm still within a handful of rows of dividing off for the heel.
I know I say this about nearly everything I knit, but I really like this pattern. I love the way it looks, and I love how quickly it is knitting up. Seeing not one, not two, but three separate charts in the pattern (and no written 'translation' for the charted portions) I was a little intimidated at first. I'm glad now that I decided to forge ahead and just knit on faith. Because the charts are very very easy to follow and I am going to have a pretty impressive pair of socks when I'm done.
Chart A 4 times, then chart B once, then chart C twice,
a slight rotation in needles and most of chart B for a second time.
Heel coming in 5 rows or so . . .
This pattern is definitely a keeper. I wish my camera would pick up the true green color of the yarn; these are not blue socks!
Last week I mentioned that I had just started reading Plain Truth. It turned out to be a very gripping story (in a good way, not a scary one if you--like me--are not into horror stories). I finished the book on Saturday, I think. Anyway, I recommend it if you like mysteries and/or stories about the Amish way of life. Actually, some of the portrayals reminded me of my own Germanic upbringing and the standards I have. In that way, it was not only entertaining (the reason we read fiction, right?) but also insightful.
