I finished these socks and sewed in the ends the night before I left for Scotland. I wanted to take them and they were so close to being finished. ^^ They were knitted with Moda Vera Noir that was given to me for my 30th last year. I picked a cable pattern out of my Knit and Crochet Bible to use on them with the hope they might slurr the stripes a bit but it didn't work. They just look stripey both ways. It's a very simple cable. If you can even really call it a cable.
I doubt both socks are exactly the same. Well, I know they are not. I didn't follow a pattern and then had to guess to get the second sock similar. He he. The 'cabling' is over the top of the foot and then right around the ankle with a basic rib at the cuff. I did short row heels as that's all I know how to do. For the second I tried a version from Little Red in the City as I mentioned in this post. It's the one on the right. I like what I did on the first sock better. Less holey looking. I don't know what it was I did though. Ha ha. But that's what you get for not following a pattern and not keeping a record of what you do. I don't mind though. They kept my toes warm in Scotland. ^^
