Handspun Sock progress...

Okay, so I cast these on yesterday afternoon whilst my boys were all out at the footeh.....then I frogged them back as I wasn't happy with
I re~cast on last night, with 64 stitches, using a DK King Cole anti~tickle solid in purple for the cuff, on 2.75mm needles. I changed to 2.5mm when I switched to my handspun, and I am using the Lacy Mock Cable Stitch pattern.
I'll also use the King Cole for the toe as well...... :)
Lookin' good sofar, and although the stitch pattern is a little bit lost in the colours, I really felt it was important to have lots of texture with my handspun. The whole reason I frogged it back was that plain stocking stitch just looked too flat and
Onwards and upwards!!!
