I started using this pattern, but then opted not to put cables on the heel since I rarely wear open-backed shoes. I knit this on size 3 dpns to make the stitches snug and comfy on the foot.
This is knit in Artyarns Supermerino (color 105), a wonderfully soft yarn that Andrea bought for me! Because cables devour yarn, the two hanks I have aren't enough for two socks. My fantabulous swap buddy Friskums has sweetly bought the third hank for me so that I can complete the pair! :happydance:
