FO: cable twist socks
These took longer than they should have (& even longer to photo), but I'm happy with the finished product.

Lesson learned: don't use a multi-coloured yarn with patterned socks again any time soon. The definition of individual sts by the colours and the single purl at the edge of the instep made preventing the gusset hole more of a challenge than it should have been.
