Mystery Solved!

The Mystery Monday socks are finished!  These were a fun KAL. I think the pattern has a beautiful blend of cables and lace that compliment each other very well. Here are a few things that I loved along the way:

After the second clue was complete there were quite a few comments that the pattern looked like owl eyes.  I didn't notice that on my own, but once it was mentioned it was all I could see :-)
I loved how the cables on the heel flap wound back out to the sides of the foot.......
and how that was mirrored on the instep too.
Here they are complete!  Yay, new socks for me!
Pattern: Gentian by Lisa Stichweh
yarn: Hazel Knits Artisan
Color: Cascade Canopy
Needles: 2.75mm
Mods:None, but if I were to make these again I would probably go down a needle size on the foot.
