I have recovered from the frogging incident. It's amazing what can happen if you use the right hook, the right pattern, and some beautiful hand-dyed sock yarn.
I don't think this multicolored yarn lends itself well to showing the cable pattern, but I love it anyway. Here's a close up - you might be able to see the cable in action.
And if this is any indication, these socks might actually fit when I'm done. (Do not attempt to adjust your monitor - I really am that pasty.)
