Until I knit my Simply Lovely Lace Socks, I had only ever done socks in straight stockinette. I’m about to do some more socks for myself ( :teehee: ) and had thought I’d do them in a 3x1 rib, b/c I had read that ribbed socks fit more snugly than stockinette. It’s true that all my stockinette socks have had a little slouch in them. I’m torn b/c I’ve also been tempted to try a little simple fair isle on these socks, which I think looks better on stockinette (or am I wrong?).
Anyway, it makes me curious. What do the rest of you prefer, and why?
