Progress on Sock

Hi guys,
I made some modifications to two patterns and melded them together in this sock. Originally, it said to begin and end each row with a purl stitch. Even though it can be done, I really dislike starting a row in the round with a purl stitch; just my personal preference. So, I just moved the side cables closer to the center main cable and added three stockinette stitches on either side and decreased the purl stitches accordingly. Here is the result.

Thanks, Joe. Coming from you, that is a grand compliment indeed. Now I just have to get busy and turn the heel and get the first sock done. Then I will work very hard to avoid Second Sock Syndrome!!

Maybe you can cast on the second one and knit part of it. Then you only have to finish it once the first one is done.

Hi Joe,
I was thinking about doing that. I may just do it.
Thanks.
