As soon as I began knitting this yarn, I realized even though it’s very close to a solid color, the cables weren’t going to show up as well as if it were a lighter color and a very solid. It’s going to be the same thing with my Composition Book Gray Paraphernalia socks. Next time I make a pattern sock, I’ll be sure to choose a very solid yarn.
This pattern is so easy. If you can already knit socks and want to try cables, I highly recommend Paraphernalia. Someone had mentioned in a comment earlier that the difficulty rating is 4 out of 5 stars. That is incorrect. On Ravelry, users rate patterns as to “average rating” which is how much those of us who have used the pattern like it. I interpret this to mean . . Is the pattern written well? Does the pattern fit well if made according to instructions? Do you love your socks? A 5 star rating is the best and this pattern has a 4 out of 5 star rating. On the difficulty level, there’s a sliding bar type rating and this pattern has probably between a 25% and 30% difficulty rating and that’s not difficult at all. So, don’t be afraid to try this pattern. Because the cable is on an outer edge and not in the center, there’s a left sock and a right sock so if you make it, be sure to pay attention and not make two of the left or two of the right sock.
Anyway, here’s my one sock (a left one) done! The more I use the Bugga yarn, the more I love it.
It fits well and the cables look nice. It’s now time to cast on for my Project II. Next week is a busy week but I would love to have both gray socks and the second gold sock done by this time next week. Can I do it?
