KAL Part 1

I have been knitting socks through a KAL by Knit Purl Hunter.  I decided to follow this KAL because she was putting cables (easy ones) on the socks and I had never done cables.  I have seen several patterns with cables and I have always had to pass them by because I didn't know how to knit cables.

I am way behind in this KAL.  I think that is because I am knitting two at a time.  I do that because I know that I would never knit the second one if I only did them one at a time.  She has released a new to me heel, part 2, and a different cable pattern for the leg, part 3.  And I am now just almost to the point of starting the heels so I obviously have a long way to go. 

Please don't look to closely at my socks.  There are several errors as I learned how to do the cables and not get lost in the pattern.  But I really like how they are looking anyway so I will keep going.

I am also knitting a hat to go with my recent scarf but I don't have a picture so maybe next time.  Have a great weekend.  Gari

Very pretty! If you are learning new skills, they don't have to be perfect.

I am impressed! Your socks look so warm and cozy. Love the cables. Good for you for tackling a new technique!

Gari, Your socks looks great to me. I admire you tacking both cables and new heels plus 2 at a time. You are an inspiration. I'm trying the Magic Loop with short socks and having trouble understanding exactly what to do. I can't imagine learning all those different things on one pair of socks plus TWO at a time!!!
