Freshman Cable Socks

I haven't seen the new Knitscene yet but it's hitting the stores really soon.

I have a pattern in there: Freshman Cable Socks... Wanna see a teaser?

(Thanks to emilyshmemily for modeling!)

Freshman Cabled Socks

I’m really inspired by the way you can draw simple lines and geometric shapes with basic cables; the design happens from the placement of the cables, rather than the detail of the cable itself.

Freshman Cabled Socks

This project uses cables that are elongated and stacked in a spiraling, angular design. The left and right sock mirror each other for added interest.

I originally wanted these socks to be like your freshman year in a new endeavor… jump in and get started!

But maybe these are just socks to wear to the library. Either way.

Just saw these on the Lorna's Laces blog, and I have to tell you, I love them!!! They look like... you know sometimes you get a dessert and the chef decorates the plate with parallel strands of a sauce, and then takes a fork and nudges the straight lines to one side or another? That's what these socks look like to me! Gorgeous!

Those are super cute! I'm loving your blog. I jsut found it today via a link to your cuffs on Threadbanger. I'm totally adding those cuffs to my "must-make" list. I'd love to link to them as well if you didn't mind!

Hi my name is Jessie and I have followed knit picks for a while, but never stopped by for a comment. I LOVE THESE SOCKS!!! Am I able to obtain a pattern for them, I want to start working on them tonight. I love knitting, it help untie the knots in my mind and in my heart, and making these socks would be perfect!

You know I love, love, love these. I told my SS students to check them out for male-ish inspiration.

I also loved meeting you! Until the next time...
