Obsessing Again

Awhile ago I wrote up a pattern for a lovely pair of cabled socks which I decided to entitle "Obsession Socks" because the cables were so fun I couldn't seem to put the needles down.

I finally got around to knitting up another pair.  I haven't decided yet if I'm going to keep them for myself or gift them.  I just love the way the cables on the edge of the foot continue all the way to the toe past the decreases.  It's the sock equivalent of using sparkly nail polish on your toes.

I need to work on the pattern a bit more, because despite the small needle size, the socks still feel a bit baggy and loose.  I prefer tight, snug socks.  

So perhaps I'll give them away.
