I'm caught in a Coriolis

If you have knitted a pair of Cat Bordhi socks and fallen helplessly into the novelty of the architectures she spells out in her "New Pathways for Sock Knitters", you know what I mean. Yeah, I got the book and looked at it and yeah the pictures were really cool and the patterns intriguing but then I saw what could be done with them. Like the Coriolis. Your basic one looks like this. Who would have thought that a little band across the instep would make you want to knit like a mad fiend? (clicken to embiggen)

Then what does this evil little pattern want you to do? Make more, only with bigger bands. And not just a band but a cable! Yes, yes, I want a cable going over my foot because it's so fricken cool! Look what I've done in only 5 days! Muwahahahahahahaaaa!

The cats are waiting for the nice men in the white coats to take me away. "I called five minutes ago. Where are they?"

Note: next week will be Fiberqat's 3rd blogiversary. Have a nice piece of custard pie.

those do look cool. You are tempting me to go find that book, though mostly I knit socks for "I don't have to look at this" knitting.

I cannot click. I must not click. That way lies madness.

(What is that second yarn? I'm absolutely transported by it!)
