Tisty-toasty Log Cabin Socks

My last knitted item for New York - a little treat for me - Log Cabin Socks using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran - mmm sooooo soft and sooo warm.

First one was done before we left and the second was just started - finally finished a week after we arrived - of course, would have been sooner if Australia allowed knitting sticks on our planes! Oh well. I love how the cables continue down into the heel flap, and all the way to the toes.
Details:
Pattern: Log Cabin Socks from Handknit Holidays - what a great pattern - I love this - I would definitely make these again. Because the yarn I used was not the same weight as recommended, I made the man size on the lady size sticks! Perfect!
Sticks: 3.75mm bamboo dpns.
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, col 300617 lot 5 - 3 balls - I wasn't sure if I was going to make it but had about 2 metres left over at the end!
Time: Sock 1: 28 Dec 06 - 2 Jan 07; Sock 2: 16 Jan 07 - 23 Jan 07 - lovely quick socks to knit.
What I learnt: My first cabled socks. I also used this pattern, adapted, for husby's beanie - so I learnt how to write a pattern for a different sized object!
