Knitting Notes

Pattern: cable baby by Pamela W. Allen
Yarn: Tess's Designer Yarns Peruvian Sock Yarn
Needles: Size 3 DPNS

In casting on the Annis Shawl, since it has so many stitches, and during the lace portion I can only hack one pattern repeat a work night, I decided to find another sock yarn using up pattern to do after I was over lace for the night.    I was getting a little sick of my usual sock yarn hat pattern, so found this one.    I like it.    It's not super hard, but looks really nice, and is definitely more interesting than knitting in the round.   I did decide to leave off the icord finish.

I hadn't worked with this yarn in a while, and I'd forgotten how much I love it.    It has a little silk in it, which makes it the most lovely yarn to work with.    And I really liked the colors.    I did have enough left over to make one hexipuff.
