Cable Socks KA Anyone?????
I just finished my Rainy Day Socks and am dying to make something cabled. Since socks are so quick and easy it's nearly instant gratification........who's with me???????

I haven't decided on a pattern yet. I need ideas.

Hey there! Does it count if I am already 1/2 way through my second sock? I am working on the Uptown Boot socks from Favorite socks, and they are cabled. I think it might be the most complicated thing I've made so far, even though I've done both socks and cables before. It's combining them on itty bitty needles!

That's the 1st one, still on the leg of the 2nd one
(That's the book with the pattern in the background)

The pattern is in Favorite socks, it's the Uptown boot sock pattern. The yarn is Knit picks essentials red. I love the yarn, not too splitty, and soft but seems durable for socks. The pattern is quite easy but the directions get a bit wonky when you get to the heel. I actually decided the pattern directions for the heel confused me too much and brought out Silver's heel instructions. Hence, DH saying "why does that part look wrong?" It looks wrong because you aren't supposed to look at it!

Oh, and don't forget Twinkle Toes (toe up) from an episode of KG this week.

I might try that just to see how I like working toe up. The 2 socks I've made were leg down.

Arielluria, you are providing me with some wonderful sock patterns........I don't know how you're finding them (I've looked through lots of sources), but, THANK YOU.
I love that first one called "Saucy"..........I've just started a new pair of socks, so I can't get to them yet, but I WILL be knitting them, with gratitude to you in my little knitting heart !

Dotty, good, I'm glad! Here's some more to think about

I perused Lion Brand cable stitches and came up with lots of good looking stitches to perhaps make up my own one-of-a-kind cable sock. See

I'm getting lots of good recommendations for cable socks on another post of mine. Looking For Cabled Sock Pattern
I posted that before I thought about a KA. I hope to start on SOMETHING this weekend.
