As I worked on Sock Knitting Master Class, I found that I wanted to knit every pair of socks. Not only are they all good designs, but each one has at least one lesson in technique or design application. I am certain that anyone who knits all of the socks in the book will end up a veritable master (hence, the words “Master Class” in the title). And who better to give it a go than myself? So, I’ve decided that I will work my way through the book, knitting each pair of socks (well, maybe with a few exceptions or modifications to suit myself) and hopefully using up some of my stash yarn in the process.
I’ll write posts about my experiences as I go so you’ll get even more insights into these fabulous designs.
First off is Cookie A’s Asymmetrical Cables (page 48), which are shown in Pagewood Farm St Elias (80% Bluefaced Leicester, 20% nylon) knitted at a gauge of 8 stitches/inch in stockinette, worked in rounds..

What a fun idea! I wish I had time to knit along with you. And you are so smart to swatch!
This may be my 2012 Socks from Stash project… the entire book… Great idea!
