Finished these Cable Footies last night. It's been a long time since I've done socks, actually never done adult booties before. I was always afraid of the kitchener stitch but since Susan posted her tutorial I had no fear! I think they turned out great, they were fun to knit and I will make more. This pair is going off to my Aunt. She's going through some pretty rough kimo right now and I wanted to send her some knitted love.The pattern is from One Skein and I used Atacama, 100% Alpaca. Love the yarn. It's actually left over from the Slouchy Cardigan that I knit last winter. Here's a (not very good) photo. The pattern for this is out of the Knit Café book.I had 3 skeins left over from the cardi because I didn't do the hood. It was plenty enough to make these footies and I think I'll even be able to make a baby hat or two from what I still have on hand!
