just past the first gusset



i am just past the gusset on the first sock, knitting in posh yarn lucia sock in the rainbow colorway on a 2.5 mm addi circular. it was lovely meeting yarnissima this past weekend at benediktbeuern and so helpful to have her and ms. b help out with my lack of ability with reading german cable charts and cabling without cable needles. i did one more repeat of the chart before starting the gusset for size 9 women's feet, but they would have fit snuggly without it. also, i opted for a magic cast on toe with 16 x 16 stitches which i increased up to 60 before starting the foot chart. here's where i am as of tonight:



cheers,

I just started these socks and I am LOST! I read that you got mucho help on reading the cable chart- any advice, tips, tricks? I just don't get it! I understand how to do the traveling stitches but I don't get when to do them... does that make sense? I guess I can't read the chart correctly or something- Any help would be much appreciated! :) BEAUTIFUL SOCKS!
