One sock and then a problem

Well it took less then 20 minutes to finish the one sock.

Pattern: Dove socks from Cat Bordhi's New Pathways For Sock Knitters
Yarn:Calzetterina
color: Milan
needle: size 4 40 inch magic loop
For: My mommy (whose foot is a lot smaller then mine hence why my foot is squished into it)

While I was biding off, one of the worst things happened.

broken cable

The cable came out of the metal screw piece. Of course I tried to put it back in and well it just fell back out. I called Knitpicks and they are sending a replacement. Which is fine and dandy but it will be here in 5-14 days. So I went hunting for the other 40 inch cable (had to switch it with another cable) and know I am more then half way up the foot.

The socks look great. Are you sold on socks on circs? I have not tried them yet. Your pinwheel sweater inspired me to make one of my own - ordered the yarn tonight. You are costing me money, girl!

Oh no, what a bummer! That happens to me all the time with the knitpicks but they are really good about sending a replacement - too bad they just don't make them higher quality! =)

Oh, that's too bad about the cable...how annoying. The socks are cute, though! (Can't wait to see the new yummies from Webs)

The socks are great - too bad about the needle. I hope your replacement comes sooner than expected!
