Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

I Love Gansey Socks in Progress

Click on picture to see more detail.

Both cuffs are done, one with a heel flap.

The cuff on the left shows the pretty cable panel that goes down the left and right side of the sock.

The seed stitch hearts go down the front and back of the sock. The cuff on the right is turned to show the back of the sock with a heart on the heel flap.

Pattern: I Love Gansey Sock designed by Janine LeCras for the Six Sock Knitalong

Yarn: Opal sock yarn, 75% wool, 25% nylon

Color: UNI-Solid red

Needles: Addi Turbo #1, but with all the two stitch cable crossings in this sock I wish I had some sharp pointed Options needles.

Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch in stockinette
