Rib and Cable Socks
The pattern for these is by Nancy Bush and is in Interweave Knits Fall 2005. I used 2 balls of Panda Cotton in Seascape and 2.25mm needles. I did one less pattern repeat on the cuff than the pattern called for, had I done the extra repeat I would have run out of yarn so it was good guesswork deciding not to follow the pattern exactly!
I'm not sure why one sock is lighter than the other, I had knit the lighter yarn into another sock but ran out of yarn so perhaps it faded a bit in the process...
I'm really happy with the result, they are really comfortable (I'm wearing them today!) and medium weight so they should wear well!
