Beautiful pattern.

March 30th:I started to knit toe.
April 7th:I turned heels.
April 12th:I finished socks

I increased in toe like in the pattern until I had 80 stiches on both socks. Then I started cables like chart of big size, but I left two stiches from both edges away.
I knitted stiches in the main cable twisted.
I started gusset when I had knitted 13.9 cm. I increased 17 times and then I turned heel.

It was so slow to knit them because of small needles. But it was worth of it. The pattern was very clear.
I used 91 g yarn to these.
