What are you most proud of? Love the reinforced toe, sole and heel. The gusset heel cable split turned into a nice feature for these socks.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The gusset and extra short rows in the reinforced heel fit mom's foot wonderfully.

Nicely done!!! I really like the way the cable design fits into the sock anatomy. Is that a crochet finish at the cuff? Beautiful!

Thank you Ginochka, Yes, I used a crochet hook to do the picot finish on the cuff. Of course you can do this with knitting needles as well.

Wow, so clever having the cables border the gusset.

Thanks. It was easy to do because I was taking the class by Carol Feller, Celtic Cables when I knit the socks. Carol shows you how to split cables the way I did for the gusset.

Hi Ariana :-) I absolutely love what you did with these socks! Would you mind if I asked you if you did the gusset increases on the sole side or the instep side of the split cable? I can't tell from the photo... Cheers!

Ach! I can't figure out how to delete my last comment...I think I figured it out...it became apparent soon enough :-)

If I recall these socks were made using the free Ravelry pattern by Erin Case at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cabley-goodness-top-down-toe-up-socks . Erin is the host of the podcast the Anatomy of Knitting. I did slip stitch for the sole and split the cable at the heel. I hope this is helpful.

Thanks Ariana! :-) Really appreciate the link to the pattern...
