Alex socks........my own design

Hi lovely knitters !

I just finished this pair of socks, using a beautiful skein of hand-dyed yarn that I acquired in a trade. The young lady, who dyed the yarn, goes by the name of 'RoryGilmore' here, in these forums, and sells her beautiful yarn on Etsy......... here .

It's just a basic stockinette sock, with short row heels, knitted from the toe, up. I just replaced the center 20 stitches of the instep with
P2, K4, P2, K4, P2, K4, P2
and gave those 3 columns of K4 a right or left twist (cable) every 6th round. Then when I started back up the back of the heel, I replaced the center 8 stitches of it with
P2, K4, P2
and did the same type of cable all the way up the back of the leg.

Just beautiful! I love the colors, and they look very warm and cozy. Thanks for sharing your pattern -- I think I'll make these for my sister for Christmas.

Just beautiful! I love the colors and the pattern. If I could knit socks like that I'd be one happy camper!! Maybe someday.
