Comments: This was my lone Summer of Socks project, and I did not manage to finish them during the summer. I knit most of this pair during my summer travels: developer conference sessions, class reunion, and August family visit. I would not knit this pattern again. It was an interesting knit, but in wearing the socks twist around on my ankles and feet because the mock cables make for a strong bias in the fabric. I'm not a big fan of the Trekking Pro Natura. In knitting it is a little harder and more string-like than regular Trekking, and it has not softened with washing and wear.
