The Knitting Garage at Stickle's in Rhinebeck, New York

I have made two pairs of socks with this yarn for my husband and am about to start a third pair (his summer sock collection). I am making this pair for myself to experience first hand how the yarn wears.
I always knit my socks toe-up two at a time on two circular needles using the FLK for the heel and finish with Jenni’s stretchy bind off.
For added interest I am using the broken rib stitch for four rows alternating with the texture pattern from the Hermione Socks for four rows. I like the look and texture.
To finish them I did a simple 1 x1 ribbing (every row) and bound off with Jeni’s surprisingly stretchy bind off.
