Cabled Cuff Socks

Glad these are done.  I ran out of yarn and couldn't make them the usual size.  I had to turn them into ankle socks.  The pattern is called "Cabled Cuff Socks" from the book "Knitted Socks" by Anna Tillman.  The book might be out of print.  I found a copy dirt cheap at a second hand book store in Boothbay, Maine.  The cable cuff is knit first and joined.  Then stitches are picked up and worked down to the tow. I reinforced the heel and dropped down a needle size to do it.  Definitely going to make another pair but I'll be sure to have more than 100 grams of yarn.
