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.
