Cabled socks are lovely, and ribbed socks always fit so nicely, but it can be a challenge to pair the two techniques. In this toe-up pattern, a simple cable twist pattern flows up the sides of the sock from toe to cuff while ribbing fills in the space on the instep and sole. The pattern is maintained over the short-row heel. In all ways this sock is centered on comfort; the thick cotton/silver/lycra yarn cushions and coddles the feet, a slight gusset keeps the heel from binding, and the short leg allows for comfort even in the warmest months. These are quick, happy socks, with just a twist of cable along the sides!
Boone, North Carolina, is one of my favorite vacation destinations. It's a bit funky, a bit crunchy, and very grounded in the natural wonder of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The yarn, SilverSpun, is Carolina-made, designed and spun on the NC State University campus. My first job was at NCSUso these socks are special to me on many levels.
