Loopy Academy, Cables

image 
After my decision to change gears with the cables project, I cast on and began knitting Paraphernalia socks (or so I thought).  I’ve knit this pattern before and I really like the finished socks.  The cable is large, but it’s only on one section of the sock (the rest is just ribbing), so I don’t have to really think for the rest of the sock - just what I needed.  As I was knitting along, I was admiring how much quicker this pattern was than my first choice, and I put the sock over my hand to spread it out a bit and look at the cable.  The next thing I knew, I was figuring out where to put a thumb gusset and had knitted one!

I changed gears again!  So, instead of socks, I’m knitting a pair of Paraphernalia mitts.  I’m pretty sure these will be my cable project.  I’m feeling the knitting love with these!  As you can see in the photo, I’m just about finished with the first mitt and then I’ll just have to repeat things for the second!  (I use round counters obsessively and take notes, either on paper or in knitCompanion, so the second mitt/sock/sleeve is always faster than the first.)

I love these as mitts! I'm trying to think what yarn I have in my stash that could turn into these. Very nice.
