Cape cod socks redux

i ripped back to the cuff of the too-short sock and reknit, so my socks are the same length now. socks were knit cuff down, 72 st on #1 metal dpns, 2 skeins knitpicks sock landscape in cape cod, stitch pattern is elongated corded rib from sensational knitted socks. i tried a round toe this time, which taught me that i much prefer the wedge toe.

Elongated corded rib stitch pattern
i just machine washed them on cold in a lingerie bag and they didn't felt. if they hold up ok, i may order some of the color your own sock yarn from knitpicks. i like that the socks are very cushy feeling, but there's no way i'm handwashing them.
