Trekking Cable Socks

I love these socks! They were fun to knit, I think due to the cable. It added interest and made it go faster (knit, knit, knit, cable row!) I like the Trekking yarn. It fades from one color to the next, and it is the right weight for all season socks. At least here in Colorado. I will definately make these socks again. Maybe modify the pattern a bit. Maybe do the rib up the foot as well, and maybe do five rows between the cables instead of four.

I have already cast on the Carousel Claudia Handpainted Yarn.
