Sockapaloooza Cuff's Done

I'm knitting them up at the same time. I can't afford to get second sock syndrome here. Only a couple of weeks to go, and with being sick, kids and work, I don't want to risk it.

I decided to do my own design. I really wanted to do something that I didn't have to think to much for, and following a pattern would have been perfect. But all the ones I wanted to do were a bit complicated. I want something pretty, but not complicated. So I'm doing a mock cable pattern.

I am thinking for the heel, I'll do the traditional heel flap, but want to do a line of mock cables down the center of the heel, but unknown how to do that with the sl1, k1 heel. Got a few days to figure that one I suppose.

I want to learn the magic loop/knitting 2 on the same circular needle, but don't really have the money right now to go out and get one. We just got 6 tickets for Day out with Thomas for $114. That hurt.
