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! : )
