Some of my most favorite handknit socks to wear are just simple 2x2 ribbing throughout. The elasticity of the ribbing makes for a perfect fit everytime - but, sometimes you just want something a bit more interesting to knit (and wear)! The Mondim socks give comfort of a ribbed sock while throwing in a bit of fun with some contrasting color and lace. Enjoy!
