Springtime Cables

After several months, I finally had the opportunity to knit a pair for Sockamania. I enjoyed this pattern, thanks Anni!

I left out the cables on the instep, and also reduced the stitch count down to 60 from 66. I also mirrored both the cable placement and cable twist on the second sock. The socks look different because I was using a hand-dyed yarn, and knit one sock with one end of the skein, and the other with the opposite end. Very surprising! : )

Each is beautiful. It's amazing that they came from the same skein.

I rather like that the colours look slightly different and it has certainly shown the cabling up nicely :)
