The 5th sock in Green Planet Yarn’s “Socks for All” sock club was this Asymmetrical Cable sock pattern by Cookie A. The pattern can be found in the book Sock Knitting Master Class by Ann Budd. I continued my trend of using Malabrigo yarn for the sock club and used a sock-weight superwash merino yarn in the Velvet Grapes (204) colorway. I have a love/hate relationship with this color. The color is really beautiful and makes me want to drink grape juice immediately. However, that same darkness makes it really hard to read the knitting or to see any kind of pattern. This yarn probably wasn’t the best choice for these socks, which have a cable pattern that winds around the leg, as the pattern doesn’t show up well. However, the color is irresistible and I love the socks for that alone.
