The yarn is A Piece of Vermont's wool/nylon superwash. It's a great yarn, although I'm not sure Jessie is still using this base yarn. The color is called Away.
The pattern is the Baby Cable Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks. This the second pair I've made from this pattern. It's easy to memorize (even for me, and I'm a lousy memorizer) but still interesting.
As soon as I finished the sock, I cast on for my Red Scarf Project scarf -- Grumperina's Shifting Sands scarf, in Cascade 220 Paints, in a red/orange colorway called 9868. So far I love it -- I think the pattern and the colors go together perfectly.
I also did a couple rows on Daedelus, but I have to admit that I need to bring my reading glasses home from work. I can't keep blaming my problems seeing the tiny beads on poor lighting....
And finally -- here's a great video by a guy with a lot of good stuff to say. This one's called What Teachers Really Make, and it's not what you think it is.
Thanks, Helen, for introducing him to us!
