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)

Kristi Socks Finished

This was an enjoyable knit, but I didn't try to rush.

Kristi has no "rest" rounds. Of the 38 pattern rounds, 38 have cabling.

Every single row was knit from the chart. Someone who can memorize this pattern has a much better memory than I do.

One warning about this pattern, pay special attention to fit. With all the crossed stitches, the resulting fabric has little stretch in any direction.

Pattern: Kristi from Sock Innovation by Cookie A.

Yarn: Stalwart Sock from Slackford Studio. 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon 4 Ply Fingering Weight Sock Yarn.

Color: Wisteria.

Needles: Options 2.50mm circulars.

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