Jaywalker sock mojo

This is the first jaywalker sock that I have made, I was quite pleased with the way it turned out. I cast on the second sock, and ran into a few problems, well first the cable broke right at the join between the needle and cable. In addition, I have knitted this several ways, from the middle of the skein and the end of the skein, I am using the same amount of stitches, and the same size needle, and still I come up with something that resembles this. This does not look like the other sock at all. Anyone with any ideas as to how to fix this? or am I just doomed?
This is the first sweater I knit for my DH, he feels it is cut too low and would like me to some how fix it. I measure it to where he wants it to be open. If I sew up the seam it's going to look like a vagina. I can go in and pick up stitches a and knit straight rows until I get to the marked place. I could then put an icord edge on it so that it would match the original sweater. What do you think?

Yoo Hoo Hoo and left over of Yarn Pirate Shamrock

It's been almost a week since I last saw Sock #1 No one has found her, I keep looking searching and nothing. Though I will continue to look I have to come up with another plan of action. Following the suggestion of the Sisters of the Wool, I am going to ask, if any other knitters has some left over Yarn Pirate in Shamrock that they are willing to part with so that I can knit the other from the left over I have. I have some but not enough to finish the other sock. Does anyone have any they would be willing to part with so I can finish the sock?
