FO On Monday: Quick & Dirty

The Little Cable Knee Highs are done. The yarn is Sweet Georgia Yarns tough sock in riptide. I used size 1 1/2 US needles adjusting the pattern to 64sts for foot and ankle and then followed the pattern for the increases. The pattern was easy to follow and fun to knit, the 5 inches of ribbing for the cuffs was soul sucking and took forever. But worth it.

Now I am prepping for my next project. I’m questioning my sanity. I’ll be back soon to tell you about it.

    wow – very nice! I have contemplated knee socks, but never got brave enough. All that counting and measuring to get the fit right. And the “soul-sucking ribbing” never even occurred to me. Now I see how much bravery it takes to take on such a project, I am in awe.
