|side swipe stripe|
the first sock pattern, the side swipe sock(available from yarn market), is knit top-down in the round with two cable panels running down either side of the sock, with the remaining portions of the sock knitted in stockinette. it's a great beginning cable project for those who dare!
this post for the details. besides being able to purchase a .pdf of this pattern through my ravelry shop, folks in chicago also have the option of dropping by their lys, sister-ARTS studio, to purchase a hard copy.
i can't think of a better gift for someone who is fighting breast cancer - or someone who has survived it! - than a pair of hand-knit socks to keep their toesies warm all winter long.
