Ribbed Socks – FinishedFebruary 1, 2007
I finished these ribbed socks. If you remember, this was the Socks That Rock yarn that had all of the knots. I had to do the russian join, to join the balls of yarn as I was going. I am really happy with these socks. I look forward to visiting the Blue Moon Fiber Arts booth when I go to Stitches West in a few weeks.
The pattern is a 2×2 rib where one row is the 2×2 and one row just knit. If I could do it over again, I would have done the first inch or two in straight 2×2 with no knit row in between. This would have gathered the top of the sock more and make them less saggy. They aren’t really saggy though, just the different ribbing would have made them less saggy…if you get what I am trying to say.
I did a short row heel, which I love. I don’t think I can ever go back to a heel flap. The heel flaps always end up so big and baggy on me, while the short row heel is always a perfect fit.
