Irish Spring Socks: Yarn Foward Magazine

I'm proud to announce that one of my sock designs is being featured in Issue 13 of Yarn Forward magazine.

The "Irish Spring" socks.

These socks were designed specifically to meet a need: an intricately patterned cabled sock that doesn't require a cable needle. All the cables are actually clever combinations of twist stitches: one-over-one twists that are easily worked without any special equipment. And the pattern stitches are all easy to memorize, with very few rows.

Low-effort, high impact knitting!

P.S. Thanks for all the great comments re: magic loop and sock patterns... will post a summary on my learnings...
