Even the handles on this are cables. I'm working on the front now.
These are the titled cable socks, also from Interweave Knits Winter 2007. I stopped the cable at the foot so they would fit better in a shoe. My mom was really glad because while she loved the cables, the sock would have bothered her with the cables on top. My mom has MS and her feet have weird sensations so plain and soft are best. I must keep that in mind with all sock patterns I knit for her. Plain Stockinette is best. No problem!
I'm just so pleased at how the colour pooled in this, with the ankle matching the foot.
I have one more thing to share. My mom gave me these pin cushions that came from my Nana's. Aren't they adorable?! I just giggle at them every time I see them. Too funny.
