Diagonal Rib Socks

Diagonal Rib Socks

My vacation last week included some not insignificant travel time on buses and trains, so I was finally able to finish a project for myself!

These are the Diagonal Rib Socks by Ann Budd, available via Knitting Daily.
I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Cool and US 1.5 needles.

I'm really pleased with the way these turned out, even if the knitting was a bit tedious. I'm thinking I should knit up more socks at a slightly looser gauge instead of as tight as possible - they feel a little finer and less clunky.

These were also my project for this year's Ravelympics, in the WIP Wrestling event. I have too many languishing projects that I need to see through to completion, and I was hoping to get more done, but one finished project is better than none.

Back soon with more sample knitting news!

I love them! Now that I have learned to cable without a cable needle, my world of sock knitting has opened up. I think I have this pattern in a folder somewhere...
