Pattern: Diagonal Cross Rib Socks by Ann Budd in "Favourite Socks" Interweave and Cable Twist Socks by Hello Yarn
Yarn: Louet Gems Fingering, 100% merino (superwash)
Cherry Red, 2 skeins
Needles: KnitPicks 3mm dpn
Modifications: Used the twisted stitch from the Hello Yarn patten. Loved the heel turn in the Budd pattern. Discovered I've been doing toe decreases backwards. Forgot to reverse the direction of the twists to make a right and left sock. Oh well.
