Showing Off My Sideways Cable, and Question

This was really hard to do, so I want to show it off to some people who will appreciate it!

I knitted the cable first, then picked up stiches and knit up and down from it. Now, the question is, what sort of legs and cuffs should I do with it? Shorties? Longies? Simple cuff, smaller cables, seed stitch? Ideas/advice welcome!

Very nice! I think anything but a board short leg would look nice. To me, that style of leg translates as very casual and the side ways cable seems a little more sophisticated to me.

Wow! You have mad skills!!!! I think I would do a shortie or soaker with similar cable for the cuff.

Agree; shorter shorties, or a soaker, with a cabled cuff. Anything else may not look quite right! AWESOME job, btw; that looks fabulous (and hard as all get out to do, too)!!

No opinions on how to finish.

But I do have to say, major appreciation. I have not ventured into cables yet. That looks amazing!!! Good job mama.

Well, it's done! Thanks for all the advice! I decided to keep 'em short, and did a seed stitch cuff. It was a lot of time, but worth it!

I think you should make them slightly long shorties w/ smaller cables at the cuffs. Don't forget pics when you are done.
