A Finished Object That Isn't Socks!

Look, a brand new finished object that isn't a pair of socks!! This is Fetching in the Filatura di Crossa that I bought at Knitting Arts. These are a gift for a friend's daughter for her 10th birthday. This was my first time knitting cables, knitting with waste yarn and making a thumb so I was pretty excited. I made this 2 cable repeats (10 stitches) smaller than the original pattern because they looked way too big for a 10 year old. I don't think that they are too small but I will see! I am really really happy with how these turned out. With size 6 needles and worsted weight yarn, it is amazing how fast a project can go. I started these Sunday afternoon (and finished the first one plus cast on the second before bed) and finished these Monday night after work.

Cabling close up:

This was a terribly simple pattern. I will probably make more of these for myself and/or for gifts!

I can't believe it. Not a sock. Although fairly similar isn't it, a tube only a thumb instead of a turned heel. Good job I'm sure she'll like it. And now you get all the weird random posters not me...Haha!
