These are actually socks made out of Sundara yarn, using a simple baby cable pattern.
I really had no idea just how much I had been missing out to have never worked with this yarn. It felt wonderful in my hands, and now on my feet. The funny thing is, I still would not have known how fantastic it was if Melana hadn't given me the yarn. Thank you, Melana.
Yarn: Sundara, 100% superwash merino wool, in Dahlia
Needles: size 2
Pattern: basic cast on of 64 stitches. The baby cable is achieved by working a 4 row repeat.
Rows 1-3 knit 2 purl 2. Row 4, * k2tog and leave st on needle, knit first st and slide both off needle, P2, rep from *
Notes: Heather mentioned that perhaps I may want to reinforce the heel by knitting a piece of thread held together with the yarn, in order to prevent holes. I did it on this pair, and will definitely do it on all my future sock projects. I thought that was a great tip.
