as i so often do, i stalled on these socks just before the toe. i just do that for some reason. and if i knitted toe up, i'd probably stall before the bindoff!
but i am glad i finished these. perhaps i slowed down because the leg of the mate was knitted twice. i had dropped a stitch on the 3rd round, and didn't discover the mishap 'til i had almost finished the leg. i ripped because it was a mistake i could not overlook. infact, it was glaring!
my original thoughts were that the socks would be a quick knit, on size 3 needles. but, this much cabling, even w/o a cable needle, is slow going.
i would knit these again, perhaps in a superwash wool. but, i'm not in any hurry to do so. i've got lots of other socks to knit !
