Tour de Sock: Stage Two, Day Two

It is time for stage two! I’m absolutely loving how the designer combined both colorwork and cables. I didn’t get much knitting done on stage two yesterday because we had company that I needed to entertain. I also didn’t pick the best color for a main color – dark green. I can see to knit with it at night but its harder to knit than a lighter color.

Unfortunately, I’ve discovered just how difficult it is to knit colorwork 2aat. I managed it though. However, I can’t do the cables 2aat. There are several rows where stitches need to be moved around and it it just easier if I knit them separately.

It’s hard to tell that the yarn is a dark green/silver pair instead of black/white pair. If I ever do this pair again, I’m thinking of making them like this. It’s a neat way to do it. I just didn’t have enough silver left to be able to do that. The picture was taken before I gave up and put one sock onto dpns.
