Note: You will only need one size of needles, the size that will give you gauge. The recommended sizes are the two sizes that Nancy used with the wool yarn from a small Welsh mill. Cables, colorwork and ribbing combine to make a pair of socks that will be right at home on your walking tour of Wales.
