I have completed my first Cables and Lace Samhain sock. It was a lot of fun to knit with its unique color variations. I really like my Signature Needle Arts 2.25 mm dpns with this 70% wool/30% silk yarn. I used one of the new techniques that I learned from Lucy Neatby's Sock Techniques 2 DVD. She recommends making the heel on 60% of the total sts instead of the typical 50%. This is a 64 st sock and that worked out to 38 sts, however, I inadvertently ended up with 37 sts for this sock. It does make for a nicer fit on a plain sock like this one, though I'm not sure how I would use this technique for a sock with a pattern stitch. I did not change needle sizes for the heel and toe. I thought the silk would add enough strength and that using 1.75 mm needles with this dark yarn might have been too challenging.
