The pattern came out of an old Beehive book Handknit socks by Beehive I got it at a secondhand store.  It doesn't say what year it's from, but it has a bunch of argyle patterns, too.  It cost 40 cents originally.  Eventually I hope to knit all the patterns.
The yarn is baby acrylic I bought at the same secondhand store.  It has a little bit of a pearly sheen to it, and it split like a mother, but it looks neat now.



And just to prove that I DON't have second-sock-itis:

Very nice!  I really like the pattern and the light color shows off all the texture of the stitches.  Glad to see you don't have "second-sock-itis".  Personally, I have a terminal case of it.

thanks guys.  One thing about cabled socks is that they can't really be worn in shoes for a long period of time... The stitches dig in.  They're more ornamental for kicking around the house and whatnot.

Wow--those are gorgeous! You are my hero for knitting them. They look amazing and very detailed.

Wish that book was still available!

I bet the copyright is finished, if you want a scan of the pattern.
