View Full Version : FO - Garter Rib Socks

01-22-2007, 08:32 AM
This post's Swedish word/phrase: "Det här är det första paret strumpor jag stickar som passar mig" = "This is the first pair of socks I knit that fit me"

My first ever pair of socks that fit me!!! (Can't say how many attempts I've made at knitting myself socks and then given up...)

Garter Rib Socks from Sensational Knitted Socks (http://www.amazon.com/Sensational-Knitted-Socks-Charlene-Schurch/dp/1564775704), knit in a handdyed wool from Australia. The yarn was sent to me from Katie (ToastKing) in last summer's Yarn Swap.

Great socks! I am knitting those exact socks now too! I'm about 2 in" into the second sock. I got the book at the library, but have ordered my own copy. It's a great resource for socks.
