Here’s the mentioned knitting that I’ve accomplished in the past week or so. The pattern is Snicket, available as a free download on Ravelry. I’m enjoying the cabling, especially since it’s simple enough to do without a cable needle.
The yarn is Alpaca sox, 60% alpaca, 20% merino and 20% nylon. I chose it for this project because it has a lovely halo and I wanted to soften the pattern up a bit. It’s knitting up nicely, hardly any splitting despite the cables.
The smart pouch was a Christmas present from a crafty friend who keeps linking my way (thanks for the growing number of views!). The pouch is the perfect size for socks on the go, as it fits my Knitpicks 5″ needles.
