Hand-Spun sock with cable and lace

I had concerns about fit halfway down the leg, because the cable and lace don't really stretch. However the straight knitting on the sole balanced it out, and it fits great! This sock knit up faster than than most because of the two-ply hand-spun yarn (same as dyed with onion skins) which is thicker than standard sock yarn. I used size 1 dp needles.
