T.V. Socks Pattern

Sorry, Work in Process! (in my zeal to cut and paste and get this to you sooner, I posted)
Here are my cabled sock/slippers. First I'd like to appologise for the blurry quality of my photos. I may, one day, work to change that part of me, but until then use your imagination.

As you can see they are a cross between socks and slippers. And the cable-ing runs on the front only, with short row shaping on the heel and toe. I also used a kitchener join at the top of the toe. (o.k. that part you can't see.)

Gauge: 4 sts = 1 inch & 6 rows = 1 inch

Size: ladies U.S. 8

Needles: 4 #6 DPNs, 1 cable needle

Cast on 34 stitches


Rounds 1-3: K1, P1, repeat til end.

Adjust your stitches on the three needles, so that there are 16 on the first one, then 9 each on the other two.

R4: k2, p4, k4, p4, k2, *k1, p1* repeat til end
R5: (knit the knits and purl the purls)
R6: k2, p4, c4b, p4, k2, *k1, p1* repeat til end
R7: (knit the knits and purl the purls)
R8: c3f, p2, c3b, c3f, p2, p2, c3b, *k1, p1* repeat til end
R9: (knit the knits and purl the purls)
R10: p1, c3f, c3b, p2, c3f, c3f, c3b, p1, *k1, p1* repeat til end
R11: (knit the knits and purl the purls)
R12: p2, c4f, p4, c4b, p2, *k1, p1* repeat til end

...If you want me to finish this pattern please comment and tell me to get a move on.
