I finished these a little while ago, but didn't get around to taking pictures until now. If you look closely, you'll see the two different cuffs - I wanted to see which worked better for me. And now I know!

Thanks to my fellow KHers who helped me sort these out. I really like how they turned out. Even if I still haven't sorted out the best way to take photos...! :doh:

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! :aww:

I prefer the 1x1 ribbing, though I don't know that I like the look of it as well as I like the 2x2 ribbing. But the 1x1 stays up better, and feels more comfortable for me.

This sock knitting is fun! I'm starting a pair of circle socks now, while I sort out what yarn to buy to cast on for my first shawl.

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Beautiful socks! They look like they'd stay up really well, which is always a problem for me. Where did you find the pattern?

I can't remember how I came across it, but there are two web links that have it listed:
