A sock and a sixth of a cushion cover!

Over the last week I have completed another repeat of the cables. I anticipate having to do four more repeats approximately so I have completed a third of one side – hence a sixth of a whole cushion cover ! since it has two sides. knitted cablesI think you can see the pattern developing now.

I have also finished one of my rainbow socks. rainbow sockMy original idea had been to make it a little longer but I liked the way the colours went and also it occurred to me that using the wool left over from my previous socks in this type of yarn older socksI could maybe make a hybrid sock to use up the rest of the yarn, with the pale rainbow yarn for the toes and heels and ribbing. So I weighed the older yarn and made a toe. toeMy hybrid sock may be a little short as I will have about a repeat of the rainbow colours of the newer wool. But if it is too short I could maybe add in some other left over sock wool since at least the foot part will be in this deliciously soft mini-mochi!

  1. Your rainbow socks are the most rainbowy rainbow socks I’ve ever seen! What is this yarn you’re using? This is a true rainbow, not just some close replica of a rainbow and I must have!!!!!

      1. Thank you! If it was discontinued, that often means it was “discontinued,” in other words, it sells under a different line. I’ll keep my eye on the crystal palace yarn. I love the rainbow effect of the yarn.
