Back to knitting

It's time for some kung-fu. I'll be making these socks Scottish-ish with a thistle cable pattern from Vogue Knitting Stitchionary, Vol. Two: Cables. Pattern 13 is a cute 15 stitch by 34 row textured thistle motif that I hope will show up nicely on this handpainted yarn. Whether it will or not is in doubt, but I'm going to put it on here anyhow.

The kung-fu is going to come from the fact that I need to rewrite this pattern. It's written for back and forth knitting, and I will be knitting it in the round. This is a cable, so there are crossed stitches all over the place. They'll have to be done backwards or upside down or some damn thing.

Expect to see cursing here tomorrow.
