... to lure my knitting mojo out of hiding: Have Ulli choose a yarn for a new project. When I know it's a gift for him, there's enough motivation to keep going. And as so often before, it did the trick with these socks also.
They were my car knitting project, so I kept them easy to work. Let's face it, when in the car chatting with Ulli, singing along to music and what not, there's just too much distraction for complicated patterns.
They are basically knitted completely in rib, the leg in 2/2 rib which I increased to 3/3 rib to create a hybrid fleegle heel. The 3/3 rib is continued onto the instep.
I really like how they turned out and the great fit they have. I'm already on my second pair and I'm pondering on turning them into a free pattern for everyone to enjoy. What do you think about them?
