From Sensational Kintted Socks by Charlene Schurch. Done in Rio de la Plata merino sock yarn purchased at my LYS.
This is my third pair of socks, and the first in which I ventured off a straight stockinette. The book had DPN instructions and for two circs. I prefer the magic loop, which I recently learned. Adjusting the pattern was pretty intuitive.

They are soft and warm; I do love the yarn. Here are the photos, though I'd submit that my calves aren't as big as they look in the photo. Hope you like them.

Very pretty. I am always so envious of people who can knit socks, I find them intimidating. Great job and I love the baby cable pattern!

Those are too cool! I'm working on a pair of socks out of this book but I stuck with good ol' dpn's. I tried the magic loop but it didn't go so well, I had these huge ladders, hehe.

Seeing's believing, but feeling's the truth.

Nice! I really love this pattern, and have knit it several times. I knit socks on 2 circs, but recently tried the magic loop as well and I have to say that it was a lot easier than I thought it would be!

becky23: Do not fear the sock!! It had never even occurred to me to knit a sock (and I've knitted for years) until I took a class to up my skills. I was working on a giant sweater, and took on a sock as a side project to learn the magic loop and so the teacher wouldn't just watch me knit until the next point where I needed help on my giant sweater. I'm hooked -- socks are small projects that are quickly productive, have gorgeous yarns, and you can keep one in your purse for when you suddenly find yourself with an unexpected wait somewhere.

Now that I've got the principle behind the socks down, there are many choices. Go for it!!

Ooh, cute! They look cozy.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
