You cannot really tell but i tried to put cables on the front of the sock! The first sock i didi 2x2 cables twisted every ten rows. but then you really cannot tell the are cables. Next sock i didi 2x2 cables twisted very 5 better but still really didi not look like cable i need to work on it. Maybe i sould have released two stitches on each side of the cable instead of one. I wil give it a try. How do you block wool with out felting it?
