Done: Cotton Ribbed Socks

cotton rib done baruI actually finished the Cotton Rib Socks on Thursday.

(That would be Baru's muzzle getting in my way.)

Having finished Nell on Wednesday, this meant that I was all caught up on all my WIPS.

I had nothing on the needles.

It was making me feel pretty twitchy.

I was in that state for about 24 hours, since I couldn't cast on for a new project until after work Friday.

To Recap
cotton rib sole These are made of Schoeller+Stahl Sockina Cotton. Took about 1/2 a skein for my little feet, but I haven't weighed it to be sure.

(You can actually see parts of both dog's faces, in case you think he looks strange. It's Baru's eye and Samson's nose.)

I used a US1 needle.

I worked the leg and instep/top of foot entirely in 2x2 rib in an attempt to combat the tendency of cotton socks to sag.

I worked a princess sole and kept all those stitches on one needle to avoid creating a ladder on the bottom of the foot, as happened on my New Year's Socks.
