I finished my cabled sock. I have even finished the pattern. Next week I will have to check it again and knit another sock to test knit it. Here are photos, unfortunately done inside with a light on. It's 9:30 in the morning so you can guess how dreary it is outside.There's the Star Toe.Heel and gusset: I use a box heel which is the same as a more standard heel except that when you turn the heel and work across the bottom of the heel the number of stitches between the decreases stays the same. It makes the underside of the heel a straight strip instead of a V shape.
Have I mentioned how hard it is to take a picture of your own foot? It's even harder to take a photo of the bottom of your foot but here is the box heel. Check it against the bottom of your own socks, have you ever looked? Some earlier shots which show the cables better.

I'm off this weekend for more outdoor knitting at the last folk festival of the season. Hope it doesn't rain too much.

  1. I love a box heel, I always have and always return to the box heel for all my socks. And I have a lot of socks. Like the pattern, looks great.
