thank you all for the support and encouragement, nothing like a lively kal to help speed things along!
yarn: posh yarn lucia 4 ply in colorway "rainbow"
needles: 2.5mm addi turbo circular, magic loop style
mods: cast on with magic cast on 2x16 stitches, increased every other row up to 60 stitches, knit an extra full cable pattern repeat in the foot before the gusset, did not size up needles for calf shaping, only knit 11 rows after pattern at the top.
thoughts: lovely pattern, very challenging for me in the twisted traveling stitch department, but the upside is that now i can knit other yarnissima patterns and also use the books of german patterns i have with the same cable chart notation.
