This sock was inspired by watching too much Sam Spade. The art deco-inspired foot comes up into tendrils of smoke wafting up the leg.

Toe-up socks with two heel options, designed with a long-color-repeat yarn in mind. The decreasing ribs and the cables up the side make it easy enough for a relative beginner, but interesting enough for an experienced knitter to not get bored.
