I guess that's the problem with taking pictures inside. The flash gives you the color that's closest to the color but it washes out the cables. No flash gives you the cable but the sock looks blue rather than the wonderful purple it is!
I'll go outside and take some pics there...it is finally sunny after a gloomy weekend (hello, winter!) and maybe that will work.
But I like these socks. From A Fine Fleece...and I keep the cable pattern going all the way down the foot (I didn't do moss stitch on the sole, though, just stockinette). It seemed to almost knit itself.
Cherry Tree Hill Supersock, in Amethyst. Possibly the best purple sock yarn in the Universe.
