I love knitting socks, but you would never know it here because most of the socks I knit are for swaps or given to my mod buddies...well, I was told to start posting in the other boards, so here I go...

I made these socks for JillHogan in the OWS 100 swap.  They are a standard top down sock but I decided to do a mock cable on the leg and down the front of the sock.  I love variegated sock yarns since they do not compete with the stitch and yet, they still add some life to the monochromatic color scheme.  This one is from KnitPicks.  Don't worry, Jill, I washed them before I sent them to you...no stinky feet smell on your socks! Grin

and yeah, I made two matching... Wink


This pattern is fast and easy...very little counting and one of my favorites---I actually had made a pair of mitts and a cowl using this mock cable and figured it would work with socks as well...and the pattern for the cable was FREE!!
