Here's a picture of sock #1 from the pattern July Mystery Socks by Rebecca Hatcher.
I spent a ton of time sifting through the patterns on Ravelry to find a sock I wanted to knit. I wanted it to be one color, with a simple design element. Many socks had too much going on or were too complicated to knit. See, I like to be able to knit without looking at a chart every row--especially for socks! The main pattern has 2 cables running up the top of the foot, which I love. The 4 row repeat meant that I didn't need the chart after a few rows.
Right now I am about 2 repeats into the second sock. Gotta keep knitting past that Second Sock Syndrome!
