Grey handspun cable sock

I think the Cardigan of Doooom, for which I designed this pattern, put me off cables for a while. OK, I made Clessidra, but the bit that I stopped to admire wasn’t the cables, but the seed stitch. But at my knitting weekend with Frax and Kauket, I admired Frax’s Absinthe socks, but said that I preferred the cable section of the pattern to the lace. Frax laughed at me for being predictable, but it actually reminded me of my love of cables; I came home and immediately cast on this sock. Of course, all that talk of self-sufficiency and knitting from stash probably had something to do with it as well :-)
