Gingerbread Colored Socks

Yesterday, for about an hour after work I went to my occasional knitting group. I'm learning two things ~ how to make a pair of socks and how to make them simultaneously on two cable knitting needles.

Book: "Knitting circles around socks" by Antje Gillingham.

Pattern: Anne's magic stripes.

Yarn: Hand painted 2 ply fingering sock yarn purchased on line from "Knitpicks" called Gingerbread House because of the brown background color sprinkled with six gumdrop colors. It's 50% Merino wool; 25% superfine Alpaca; and 25% nylon.

I only managed to cast on.
