I just completed another pair of socks, and I thought I’d share a few pictures.
These are my Lacy Ribs Socks. The pattern is in Wendy Johnson’s book, Socks from the Toe Up.
The yarn is Bear Feet (by Raven Frog Fiber Arts), and the colorway is Jewels of the Czar. I picked up this yarn in Sitka, Alaska, when I went on an Alaskan cruise last summer.
I used 90 grams of it on size 0 needles.
I liked the yarn and the striping effect it had, but the striping stopped after I turned my heel on the first sock and began pooling. That sock is ugly. The second sock turned out completely differently with the striping continuing, for some odd reason, after the heel turn. One of the pictures below shows both socks, side by side. Not my prettiest pair, let me tell you, but the socks will keep me warm in the winter.
Thanks for looking at my pictures. If you want more info, visit my Ravelry project page or my blog (link beside my signature).
The following picture shows you how different both socks are…
