This is my first attempt at an adult sized sock. :woohoo: The pattern is the 'Lacy Mock Cable Sock' from Island of Misfit Patterns site.
The yarn used was Patons Kroy sock yarn in Winter Eclipse and needles were size 3 and made of metal. I found the metal needles much harder on my hands than bamboo and from now on only plan on using bamboo needles for sockwork.
Now I just have to get around to knitting the twin (I have already started knitting up some fabulous Fleece Artist sock wool into another pair of socks, oh my!:X: )

OOOh! Very pretty! Great job! I always cast on the 2nd sock as soon as I finish the first so I end up with a pair and not just 1!

I'm thinking on trying that one of these days! Good work. http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/images/smilies/cheering.gif I guess till the twin is forthcoming, you could sit on the other foot to keep it warm? LOL

Very pretty! My sock has a heel and a little bit of a foot! Would have more foot, but I had to take my Christmas tree down!
