Rib and Cable Socks by Nancy Bush
Despite the photo, they are in fact the same length, one is just a little more scrunched in the pic. I didn't modify this pattern much, except to make the calf shorter. These were so much fun to knit. I love the fact that for me this was a pattern I didn't actually need the pattern for. Other than for knitting the heal flap and turning the heal I never looked at the pattern at all. I decreased the toe in my own fashion rather than using her directions just out of shear laziness. For me these socks just nailed home the fact that I am finally a really confident sock knitter. I don't fret anymore at the heals or toes and even though sometimes I still screw it up, most of the time I can kitchener a toe without directions in front of me. This, my friend, makes this lady one happy sock knitter!
As with everything I knit, there is at least one totally obvious mistake, and I really don't mind at all. These socks were knit with my two hands, not some factory machine and a mistake just adds to the charm.
With these off the needles I get to shop the stash for my next sock project and I think I might already know exactly what that will be!
