Turned out to be a very different sock than I expected.
This is rib pattern from Vintage Socks done in Opal yarn. A friend of mine refers to opal yarn as the cockroach of yarn, meaning it is indestructible. This is good, since so many of my favorite yarns don’t hold up well for people I give them to.
The second sock for this probably will not get done until next month, but it was a satisfying and mindless knit.
I hope to present you with a full on stocking by the end of this weekend. If I am lucky!
