Rum runners

Here’s the project I completed a couple of days before Thanksgiving:

(Hopefully this is at least somewhat true to color on your monitor; it looks fairly accurate on one of mine and really questionable on the other, so…)

Pattern: None; it’s just a cuff-down sock, using the Mock Woven Rib stitch pattern from one of the Barbara Walker treasuries.

Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Black Purl

Needles: US0 Plymouth bamboo DPNs

This sock is worked over 64 stitches. I probably could’ve done more, as it uses a slipped stitch pattern and thus isn’t quite as elastic. Both socks still fit fine, but the second one is a tiny bit too snug (as my gauge was slightly tighter on that one). Oh well.

I like it despite the busyness of the stitch pattern. Or maybe because of it. I prefer “fairly busy” to “hideously pooling,” after all.

    Oooh! Black Pearls! They came out great. To me they look like a pair of socks that will get worn every wash rotation!
