Reverse Engineering the second sock...

Well, yes, I had to do some reverse engineering to create the second sock for my pal. In the craziness of long hours at work, buying a new car and my cousin moving in, I lost my copy of Sensational Knitted Socks. I remembered the stitch pattern (baby cable rib), but could not remember any of the shaping. So, I had fun trying to figure out the rest of the pattern from the first sock I made. Here they are:

I lucked out to have a pal who also liked the color tangerine/orange. My new Honda Element is Tangerine Metallic. These are warm socks, a little big, but should be nice to wear around the house.

I really enjoyed knitting these socks. I hope my pal likes them too. They should be out in the mail tomorrow or Monday.
