Okay, I decided what to do. I have been noodling around on what pattern to knit for the Mystery Sock KAL, and now I know. I am part of Chrissy’s clan of test knitters, and she had a pattern for testing, without a photo. On top of this, it involves cables, which, can you imagine, I have never even worked?!?!! So, this cashmerino (well, some of it) will become a pair of mystery socks--

But here’s another twist--Chrissy has named these socks "Karen's Sugar-Free Diabetes Walk Socks", and for $5 a copy, you can purchase the pattern (it does include a photo!!) with all the proceeds from the sales going towards Karen'spledge drive for diabetes. Marvelous, huh? Hurry, and get it because the sale ends the day of the walk, October 15th. Doing this will allow you to make a marvelous contribution, and knit a marvelous pair of socks! For me, I will be using the test pattern, without the photo (I promise!)--


  • Excellent place to post Chrissy's sock fundraiser. Smart move. :) I saw the socks at Powell's the other night and they are quite nice!

  • I have yet to start my mysyery sock and am also one of the clan. I have the right yarn in my stash so may join you in the this. This way I can the plug the pattern on my blog whilst knitting it. I have worked cables before (i've completed all but a sleeve of a cable sweater in 10 days, hence no sock knitting going on). Good Luck with urs lets hope ours both look similar ;)

  • I am part of Chrissy's Clan, as well, and I did test knit this sock for her, before seeing the photo - so I guess this is technically my first pair of mystery socks! You'll love the pattern, cables are fun and oh, so rewarding. Here are my finished KSFDWS socks: link
