I knit these socks in a week and it took me even longer to get around to blogging about them!
These are knit in STR lightweight in Bella Coola. 2x2 rib over 68 stitches.
I'm really pleased with how the striping matched up on the legs and feet. I made a concerted effort to match the legs up when it got to knitting the heel flap -- and it worked out! I guess that's what happens when you knit socks so closely together, timewise -- you don't necessarily have gauge issues.
It's nice to see how I've learned since the last time I knit with this yarn. My rainbow socks (rav link) were knit so tightly on US 1 needles that honestly, they aren't super comfy. But you live nad learn.
I'm still plugging away at my Simple Yet Effective shawl -- I'm more than halfway done. Also, I've cast on for my dad's Christmas socks. I'm past the heel on sock no. 1 -- now I get to knit on the foot for forever and ever because he's got size 13 feet! After I finish his socks, I have to knit a pair for my brother. And I think that will be it for my Christmas knitting!
