Finished Object 9 of 2007-Socks from Cascade Fixation

These socks are for me, and I am wearing them even as I type this post. They feel good, ya’ll.

my new socks

These were knit on size 4 addi’s and bound off with size 6s. The cuff is indeed a 3×3 [tag]spiral ribbing[/tag], and I have taken a close-up of that, since a couple of commenters did not know what that was.

3x3 spiral rib

As you can see, the design spirals. I did that by moving the stitching over one place in each successive round. I like the cable-y look of it, and it’s much easier to accomplish than the DNA cable that was all the rage last year. [tags]hand knit socks, finished objects[/tags]
