Dancing the Sock Hop

What can I say...monogamy pays. I cast on for a sock as soon as I got the fabulous handspun yarn and I refused to be tempted by other projects. Get thee from me, SSS! And so, a couple of days ago, I finished the pair, 7.5" cuffs and all.


Yarn: Sock Hop handspun in In-a-gadda-da-vida
Pattern: Variation of Nancy Bush's Madder Rib. I did a k6, p2, k2, p2 rib over 60 sts.
Needles: 2.5 mm dpns

I love them. They make me think of spring, the strange sight outside the window today notwithstanding.

These are the first of the 3 or 4 or 6 pairs I am knitting the huz for his big birthday this year. I turned the heel on the first sock of his next pair...stay tuned!
