My design ideas and advice: This pattern is one of eight pattern that I designed to launch especially at Yarndale 2017 along with the  Mohair Tweed  which was also just launched that year. The yarn is spun in Donegal so I named all the patterns using Irish words, Gael (pronounced gale) is the Irish word for an Irish person or a Scottish highlander – the essence of identity.
I love the cable on this sock, it’s one of my favourites and I have used it on a few designs so far – one is the Farrimond Cardigan from my Simple Knits book and then on Farrimond’s Cushion and on Craic Mittens. On the Farrimond’s Cushion I wrote about the meaning behind each cable, I love the history behind knitting, it’s amazing.
