I did it!
See the little bit of yarn left over? I call these "LUCKY Socks!"
The Japanese cable pattern was fun to work, the only issue is that these were supposed to fit my mom! I think she's an 8 or 9, and I'm only about a size 5 1/2, and they fit Loch too! I guess I'm a very tight knitter so I'll use bigger needles next time. Don't worry mom, you will get some cozy socks if it takes me from here to Christmas to get it right!
Now I may start a hat... I have never made a hat or anything in the round. Apparently I'm working backwards, most people start with those before attempting socks! I'm afraid of circular needles so I'll try with dp needles! There's always something to be afraid of...
