Fancy Socks!

I just finished the Bayerische socks and I love them! (2 circs size 0, Knitpicks sock in coral, 9/22-11/7)
Of the 96 plain cable twists, any guesses on which ones I really really messed up? Cable number one, of course, and cable number ninety-six! Like 95 cables in a row weren't good enough practice?
Update: Aloha Eunny! Thanks for the awesome pattern! I had a great time learning something new and I am really happy with them! In re: How much yarn I used: I used 2 balls of Knitpicks Essential sock yarn. They are 231 yards to a 50 gram ball. I used all but 6 grams on one ball and 8 grams on the other. (I didn't weigh the balls at the beginning, but some other essential balls in other colors average 52 grams). My feet are about a wide size 6 (US women's) and I did 4 repeats of the 16 row pattern on the ankle, and 3 repeats of the 16 row pattern on the foot.

Oh, those came out gorgeous! Great color too.

It's on my list of socks to knit, so I hope to get to it one of these days.
