Cable Twist Socks

Pattern: Cable Twist Socks, from Hello Yarn
Yarn: Fortissima Socka, #1035, 2 skeins
Needles: Addi Turbos, US 2 (3.0mm)

I liked Grumperina’s so much I had to make myself a pair.

I mostly knit the pattern straight, except for doing 12 rows of ribbing at the top—I basically converted the middle stitch of each soon-to-be-cable-twist into a purl—making them ankle-length, and then doing a short-row heel.

The finished socks are a wee bit short. I may wind up ripping out the toes and making them just a tad longer. Even so, I am zeroing in on the magical sock formula that will make socks that perfectly fit my feet.
