These very plain, mostly stockinette-stitch socks were not very exciting knit but who doesn’t need a basic plain sock occasionally? I liked the long ribbed cuff and knit on 2.0mm needles gave me a perfect fit. The only changes I made to the pattern were to cast on fewer stitches and shorten the cuff length because the pattern in the book is to fit a man’s foot. Oh…..and, I scrapped the Dutch heel shaping because I’m not crazy about those heels.
My next pair of socks will be knit using some Greenwood Fiberworks Handpainted Cotton Stretch Yarn. My Sockret Pal sent this to me several months back. Have any of you used it? I’m looking forward to trying something new in the yarn department and the colors are lovely.
TWIG sent me a knockoff Cinnabon recipe Saturday night and, ewe-baby, are they ever good! I made them Saturday night, let them rise in the refrigerator overnight and then baked them Sunday morning. They definitely surpass my own tried-and-true recipe! If you have a bread machine, you must give them a try!
