FO: broad spiral rib socks

16 07 2007

can i just say once again that socks that rock yarn really does rock? it does. rock. really. go get some if you haven’t tried it yet.

anyway, these were finished by the dying light of the fourth of july. we were sitting on a lawn waiting for red, white and boom! to commence. (are you crazy? i would NEVER go downtown for that thing. to many friggin people and way too much traffic. i don’t care how many funnel cakes you give me!)

the first sock pooled a bit but the second formed a pleasing stripe. now, i’m not one to frown on flashing….i just would like um….two ‘flashy’ socks versus one, okay? no matter, these socks are lovely. soft and cushy, with a handsome cuff to boot!

Dontcha just love the unpredictability? I too have yet to knit with STR — maybe it’s time I cracked it open just to how how rocking they are for myself.

Those are great – the pooling vs striping thing is always a guess – even on a pair using the same yarn and pattern!

Ooh, love the close-up of the cuff and the cable-y action going on there! Plus, the socks look super-cushy. I guess I really should try the yarn! A friend got me some a while back!
