pattern: basically, susan b. anderson's how i make my socks, modified with some basic mock cabling which i learned knitting this and this some time back.
yarn: sweet georgia tough love sock in cold mountain. delicious and beautifully vibrant yarn! so much fun to knit with.
i know that the colours and textures are a bit trippy - but that's just the reason socks are so much fun for me to knit. they're wearable no matter how fun and funky they look.
she loves it. success!
