I finished the rib and cable socks from Interweave Fall 2005. It was a fairly quick knit and the cables kept my interest up long enough to finish the pair. I used about 1 1/2 balls of Regia 4 Fadig Color in colour 5440.

Very Nice. Are you an experienced sock knitter?

Thanky you!

Lulu Clyde--This is the first pair of socks that I finished, I've only done 3 other single socks before these.

Those look wonderfu!  Much better than my first pair of socks!  These socks are next on my sock knit list. Good to hear they are a fun knit.

I've been thinking of knitting these as I have a strange love for cables...is this a suitable pattern for someone who hasn't knit socks before?

they are beautiful!
I have never knit socks before, but I have a good friend who LOVES them...Every time I see a pair of socks I just LOVE (like YOURS!!!) that makes me want to knit a pair they are knit out of Regia 4 Fadig. I have looked for the yarn on line, but can't seem to find it. Do you get it from your LYS, or an online distrubitor?

Oh, I love that pattern! I keep imagining them in solid colors but I like the Regia 4 Fadig you used, too. They look so happy, cozy, comfy.

Ubermensch--Try it! Is this suitable for a beginner sock knitter? I don't see why not, the only difference really between this sock and a plain stockinette is that there is a few cables running through. The pattern also uses a short row heel, but you could always change that to your preference. There's so many good resources for socks online and in print that you should be fine!

ErinCatherine--I got the yarn from my local yarn store. They have an online site (www.needleemporium.com) the Regia fadig color isn't listed but they do have it.
