I’ve had cables on the brain this week so this beautiful pair of socks leapt right off the page at me! Galiano Socks are designed with a gorgeous stag-horn cable down the middle of the sock to really make them memorable.

Tracie Millar designed these socks while on vacation because while their a cable pattern she says there are “a lot of cruise rows” in between the cables so you can really kick back and enjoy just knitting. While the pattern may look complicated but there’s a lot of just knits and purls on each pattern repeat.

The Galiano Socks would look fabulous in ANY color. The original looks like a nice Brushed Silver but this other Forest Fern pair has me thinking I could knit some for my husband! What do you think?

I love nearly everything tincanknits produces. Their patterns are fabulous, their photos are gorgeous, and their tutorials are so helpful and well written.

So I was happy to see that they’ve adapted one of their most popular worsted weight sock patterns, Rye, into Rye Light! Rye Light uses fingering weight yarn, is sized for the whole family and would look great in any color of Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering merino yarn. Win!

The Rye Light socks are perfect for a beginning knitter wanting to dabble in sock knitting. They are knit from the top down and have a simple garter stitch panel that is worked over the ankle and top of the foot.

Plus, there is an entire tutorial on their website about how to work each part of these socks! Check it out.
