Lacy Mock Cable Anklet Socks

Free Pattern: Lacy Mock Cable Socks
Yarn: Sockotta
Needles: Size 2 circular (Magic Loop)

This is a fun and very easy pattern with a repeat of only five rows. I've knitted this pattern on two previous occasions.
A close-up of the stitch definition for you. I knit a variety of items but always really like returning to socks.

What a great day! I had way too much fun!!!! Amazing how "fun" can energize you. I had a vacation away from work today. The sun was shining and it was pay day. Quite the combination. Don't even remind me that it was also Friday the 13th. It didn't matter.

I was out the door by 8:00 a.m. and headed into Burlington. When I arrived I had the most beautiful view of the lake and wish I had had my camera with me. The sun was glistening over the mostly frozen lake with a small lighthouse by the breakwater standing guard. The majestic snow-capped Adirondack Mountains of New York was the backdrop.

The rest of the day was spent doing whatever my little heart desired. Shopped for yarn, looked at patterns, had a fantastic lunch.

Tomorrow I am meeting fellow Vermont blogger Norma of "Now Norma Knits" along with another Vermont blogger that I have yet to meet. After lunch at a great little restaurant in this area, we will then head to Kaleidescope Yarns. It should be another fun day!

Happy Knitting!


  1. Have a wonderful time tomorrow, and I'm glad you did today! As for the 13ths, Friday or otherwise, this Saturday-the-13th baby says there's nothing wrong with those.

  2. What a neat day! I can almost picture the scenic view you described.

    Some day I plan to try Magic Loop. When I first heard of Magic Loop, I was a new knitter, and hadn't yet done socks. On a trip to an LYS (out of town), I picked up some Addis Turbos in a sz 5, 47" length, not realizing at the time that the needle size was too large for sock yarn. I've never used them. One of these days, I'll buy a pair of sz 2's!

    Your socks are gorgeous, by the way!

  3. Love your socks! They're coming out so pretty. I hope you had a really great day with Norma and the mystery blogger. They are lucky to be spending the day with YOU!

  4. So you're back to knitting socks! LOL! I saw this pattern & I had thought about using it w/my Opal yarn. Your sock & the color is beautiful!

  5. Glad you had a great day, and I hope you had a blast with Norma!
    Love the texture of that sock. I think I have that pattern tucked away somewhere. Will have to go look! (Like I need to cast anything else on...)

  6. Great socks, lovely color and I am so glad you had a great time. How neat to be able to meet IRL.

  7. That is a great looking pattern. I really will knit some socks, but it will be a while yet, getting ready to move into an apt (at last by myself again :P) and then all the unpacking, you know how that goes. But I will make some time for spinning because it relaxes me so, and I'll have to work on that blanket for my grand daughter, tho the yarn I bought is very soft, love handling it. :)
