well, let me ask you, when you do the whole ankle/calf in ribbing, does it feel snug? I not only hate working ribbing, but I don't particularly like the way ribbing feels either. Even when I shop for long-sleeve tops, I always search for what I know now is rolled stockinette necks, sleeves, and bottoms. I just don't like it, except in an occasional turtleneck anyway. maybe i'll work a gift pair in the full rib just to get some practice out of it and stick with stockinette for me or something... i just hate when things are snug, but then again, i don't want the socks falling down on me either. well, actually that probably wouldn't bother me... me? indecisive? never.
