I adore this pattern. I don't know why anyone would knit a top-down sock, leaving the possibility that they might have to frog the whole thing when it doesn't fit. This method allows repeated trying-0n and custom fitting. Kudos to Kaci for creating such a great pattern. I particularly like the garter short-row toes (seen here) and heels, which were easy-peasy.
And no trouble here with the cabled legs; others said they had trouble getting them to fit their legs, but I had no such trouble. (There are close-up views of the 'inside' and 'outside' of the cabling here and here, for your viewing pleasure).
I assume you know that I knit these as part of the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin' Sock Club 2007, right? I think there are 199 of us that get their gorgeous Socks That Rock yarn every 2 months, and this was the first "installment". I love this yarn, and want to get more, More, MORE! I'm thinking 'Knitty Rocks', 'Sherbet', and 'Titania' (that last one for Cole, per his request). And of course there is the second installment, 'Walking on the Wild Tide', which is their new 'Silkie Socks That Rock' that contain 19% silk; yum! The new pattern can be done as a knee-high with a sexy seam up the back, and that's the route I'm going, including tackling the socks-on-2-circs technique.
