Busy Time - Back to Socks

Spruce Boxed Cables socks in progressIt's a busy time of year plus I'm getting ready to leave for Idaho next Wednesday for granddaughter Sydney's second birthday.

Time for some easy knitting, and I just happen to have some sock yarn in my stash.

Stitch Pattern: Boxed Cables from Vogue Knitting Stitchionary 2.

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

Color: UNI-Solid 1264. I'm not sure what Opal calls it, but I call it Blue Spruce. It's a little too green to call Teal.

Needles: Addi Turbo #1

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

There are two rows of knit stitches above and below the purled square in the middle of the box making for an elastic stitch pattern, perfect for socks.

Please be polite and don't notice there's a dog hair in this picture.
