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!
