I’m calling my May socks “Brezel Socken” because the cable is supposed to resemble pretzels, and I LOVE German pretzels. The yarn is STR mediumweight in the colorway saffron jungle that I bought at MDSW 2011. When it comes to working with meduimweight sock yarn, I get a huge mental block because the gauge is much larger than I’m used to for socks. I decided to design a ribbed sock with a pretzel cable which runs down one side of the leg to the toe. Sock #2 has the same cable on the opposite side. I’m trying a gusset construction that I’ve never done before and I’m not sure I’m sold on it, yet…

Today some of my knitting buddies and I went to a brand new coffee shop/bead store in Regent Square called Biddle’s Escape Coffee & Bead Shop at 401 Biddle Ave. It’s a great cafe with a sweet front patio/deck offering lots of seating and shade trees. It’s a perfect cafe for hosting knitting groups. Too bad I’m like on the entire other side of the city from this shop because I’m sure I would go there quite a bit if I lived closer. (Thanks for the ride, Rachel!)
