Yarrow Ribbed Socks.

Things always work out in the end!

yarrow ribbed socks

Pattern: Yarrow Ribbed Socks from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks.
Yarn: Regia 4 of my favourite sock yarns...and it has a guarantee
Adjustments: I knit these toe up over 72 sts. Some great techniques...Judy's magic cast on as well as Cat Bordhi's ssk gusset most favourite new knitting technique ever! The heel I used came from these socks...not my favourite toe up heel, but it turned out ok. I extended the rib pattern down the back of the heel, which looked better. I cast off with EZ's sewn bind off...for a nice loose cuff.

The only bad thing about these socks is that...he loves them. They haven't even been blocked yet and he already has them on!

So...looks like I am casting on another pair of socks.
