"Beautiful Vines" sock

I finished one of the March Mystery socks:  it's called Belle Vitini, or "beautiful vines" in Italian, and it was designed by Kristi Geraci.  You can see how well the name fits:

The vines are created by an interesting combination of cabling and lace.  It was my first time to try to do cables in knitting, using a cable needle. At first it was very awkward, but now I'm somewhat better at it.

The yarn is Trekking Pro Natura, by Zitron, which is a blend of wool and bamboo.  Most of the sock yarns I use are blends of wool and nylon; we'll see if this blend has the same durability.

Now for the second sock...
