The THIRD one - red sock

OK, the third sock, the sharp bright red one is lastly finished.

Pattern : my own - simple cable stitches
yarn : Jaeger Misty DK - 40g/110m
needle : 3.5mm
usage : 2 skeins

I have tried very hard to take good shot of the bright red colour, but you see, the photos are still vagued. So frustrated that I give up to try the shot and don't waste my time. In real, I love this sock in simple cable and is more beautiful than the picture. This sock takes me quite a length of time for my mind is planning to knit a cable short sleeve vest. Takes time to browse through the cable stitches patterns, finally I have drafted the belowed using the Alpace yarn which is bought at Japan.

The centre is a cable stitches, its left and right sides are embraced by a tree branches liked stitches, then at both edge sides, seed stitch is knitted. This is only a preliminary thinking that has to test on a sample to see the outcome. I better hurry up for I want it can be worn on Chinese Lunar New Year, that is Feb 18, 2007.

The red socks are gorgeous, and I think they photographed quite well. I have trouble trying to photograph blues and purples for some reason, which is probably the light. I cant wait to see your cabled vest too, you are so clever designing it yourself.

You finished the red socks in time for CNY. And it's your own pattern too! I like the design for your cabled sweater and I'm sure it's going to look pretty in the blue yarn.
