First, these are the Dude's annual birthday socks, which follow these and these. I used 2 skeins of Knit Picks Essential Kettled Dyed but I was a bit disappointed with the lack of color variations. You can hardly tell it's kettled dyed yarn! The pattern is Gentleman's Fancy Sock from Nancy Bush.
I made a few modifications:
1) Knitting in the round
2) Ignored the bobble and replaced with a cable twist
3) When I got to the main cable, I noticed that all the previous cables were reversed! All the cables are now “modified”.
