I’m not sure why, but the cable design for these socks reminds me of the old-fashioned quotation marks - in journalism class, we’d call them 66 and 99. Somehow, it seemed appropirate to dub these the Air Quotes socks, and they’re sure to spark many a conversation when you knit them in Baah yarn!

If only one number is given, instructions apply to ALL sizes.
For medium size, you may wish to purchase a “safety”
skein of yarn, especially if you plan on modifying your socks
from the pattern as written - I only had a few yards left after bindoff!
