Mock Cables and Lace Heel Flap

I'm making progress on the Mock Cables and Lace socks from Sock Knitting Master Class. I particularly like the heel flap pattern in this design. Instead of the usual k1, slip 1 pattern, I worked twisted ribs and a few right-twist cables (worked without a cable needle!).


I hope to finish the first sock later today. It will mark the half-way point in the book--I will have completed 8 and one-half pairs of socks and will have 8 and one-half pairs to go!

That heel flap is really pretty, I love the little cables!

Great progress. I'm enjoying following your sock knitting adventure. I purchased the book. Now I just have to find the time to knit the patterns.

That's a nice looking sock! I like how the leg transforms to the flap carrying the design down the edges.

That is a pretty variation on the heel. And you are SO right about cabling without a cable needle - once you know how, everything moves infinitely faster!
