While I am experiencing rather severe startitis these days, and my WIPs are taking over the living room, I do occasionally manage to get things finished, too! Having a quick project full of interesting yet easy-to-intuit details and worked in a truly luscious yarn certainly helps.
I worked all the cabling without a cable needle, which truly made this a fast project (and it would have been even faster if I’d have had pointier needle). Definitely check out Eunny Jang’s instructions for this technique from her Bayerische Socks, or search out one of the many tutorials and/or videos for how do do this — you won’t regret it!
One present down, only… well, let’s not think about how many more to go yet, shall we? It’s not even December yet: I think I’m doing pretty well!
