The design of HeartStrings' lace and cable sandal socks, A Feat of Twist,
was inspired by a twist on the saying "A Twist of Fate." Twisty
lace columns alternate with lacy mesh enclosed in non-binding cable crossings.
The result is lots of elasticity for a good fit across a range of sizes.
One sock has left-crossing cables with right-spiraling toe; the other sock
has right-crossing cables with left-spiraling toe. Instructions are given for
making the cables with or without a cable needle.

large). 265 (340, 425) yards fingering weight yarn and knitting needles sizes US
