It seems the sock malaise has passed. I am loving the May sock! I am loving the May yarn. I look forward all day to the time when I get to pick these up again.
Theme of the month is cables. I chose a pattern I've been looking at for years, Brainylady's Basic Cabled Socks. They're coming out just right, and with 7 plain rows to every cable row, they move fast. The 2 x2 ribbing between the cables really pulls in, so I'm constantly having second thoughts and thinking about ripping out and casting on 8 more stitches, but when I try it over the very broad ball of my larger foot, it's fine, so I'm trying to stay calm.
The yarn is Dream in Color's Smooshy; the color is Visual Purple. I'm already thinking about what yarn to use for the next pair of these.
