Ribs, Hugs & Kisses

I finished the Retro Rib socks for my hubby. I made these with Cider Moon Haiku (50% wool/50% silk). Someone asked me about how silk socks hold up, but I don't remember if it was here or another knitalong. Hubby took the socks with him on a business trip this week, so I'll find out how they hold up when he returns this weekend and post an update :o)

I did make a modification to the pattern. I did these toe up using a short row garter stitch toe and heel.

I've started on my second pair of socks from the book now. I'm using more of the Haiku for these. Realized after I started on the leg pattern that I messed up the heel, but I refuse to redo them. The sock fits fine, and the slip stitch flap (instead of the eye of partridge I was supposed to use) looks fine with the sock on. Just looks a tad strange when not on lol.

Here's an angled shot of the pattern on the top of the foot and leg. These socks are constructed so much differently than any others I've made. It's making for a very interesting project!

Glad to see someone is working on the Hidden Passion socks. I am tempted, but a little scared that I won't be able to figure them out. I'll be axiously awaiting your finished photo.
