first baudelaire complete

I finished my first Baudelaire sock last night. I only had to knit the top three times. The first time I thought I had too much yarn left and so I ripped back to do one more pattern repeat. I foolishly decided that I had enough for two more repeats. Eight rows into the 11 row ribbed cuff I realized that I didn't. So I ripped out the ribbing and the last pattern repeat, redid the ribbing, did a sewn cast-off and was left with fewer than two yards of yarn! I feel like a knitting daredevil, making it by the skin of my teeth!

    Oh, that's a very pretty cable on there! Is it a bluey color or green?
