I feel good! ...I knew that I would!

Well, I got past the first chart and am thinking my yarn choice is too variegated. There are some awesome variegated Firestarter projects but this yarn - I love - Iris Sibirica by Wollmeise may be a bit too busy - the colors are each so vibrant, maybe they are fighting for attention? I think my cable pattern is lost in translation, the picture is kind of pathetic to boot. I am finding this pattern challenging (in a fun way), so I kinda want to capitalize on that cable pattern. Show me the cables!

So I have just finished the short row in a new colorway, Veilchen, also by Wollmeise. It's a pretty purpley blue. I also decided to go down a 1/2 needle size because my first try seemed a bit baggy - so I made some key decisions before I was beyond the point of no return, ah...early success! I feel good!

I like the bright colors and the cables will show up when you put the socks on your feet, the stretch is what will show them off. You need to like what you see on the plane foot too, as that is a bigger portion than the cable. And the texturing in the gusset, which is fabulous, should show up no matter how busy the yarn...

I think that blue is going to be delightful! I liked the other colorway too, but I think I am inclined to agree with you that the pattern might get a little lost.
Woot!
This is fun!

I'd go with the blue, too, but the other was lovely!

THANK YOU so much for posting this picure! It helped me re-arrange my sts so that I could understand how to work the pattern. It wasn't making sense the way I had things arranged...

I just re-did the toe and I'm starting the cable repeats.
