If this is the first sock, you can try making the next one with the purled toe and compare. Smiley  Course, I don't mind slightly mis-matched socks. 


I agree.  I think it will look cute.  But since it is for your husband, he may not think so.

However if it really bothers you, you should just frog it now.  I knit a sock before.  I twist the cast-on.  I keep telling myself it doesn't bother me, but eventually(like 6 inches of leg plus the heel) I frog it because I doesn't like it.  Since then I learn to just fix it, instead of keep going.

Penguino:  I don't mind mismatched socks either, but that would make my DH crazy!  He's a bit of a perfectionist, being a computer geek and all.   Cheesy

Knittinfiasco:  As far as sharing a pattern, I've never written one up before and I'm kinda wingin' it...I'd be happy to write about how I'm doing it if that would be helpful.  If someone knows of some good (and hopefully free) charting software I would be happy to chart out the cable.  The cable is a modification off one of my store-bought sweaters, so I don't have a book reference. 

Thanks again for all the kind feedback folks!  I really do appreciate it!

Wow!  thanks Knittinfiasco!  Cool links!  I will get on charting the motif and some basic patternish stuff.   Cheesy
