"Working socks on 52 sts - in a heavier-than-usual yarn, on slightly larger needles - makes a substantial time saving. I'll be making another two pairs of these before Christmas. They're called spindle socks because the slipped cable stitch reminds me of those turned wooden stair spindles; it's the same cable stitch used for the Badcaul socks, adapted and rearranged for the lesser stitch count. Like the Badcauls, this stitch is perfect for cabling without a cable needle - which will also cut down on the time spent. A six round pattern repeat keeps things bowling along nicely."
