So far, I am liking my plan to knit birthday socks instead of xmas socks. Three down and one to go for 2011.
Pattern: Retro Rib Socks, by Evelyn A. Clark
Yarn: Fortissima Socka Degradee Color in blues
I like these socks and the pattern, although I tired quickly of the K2TBL's. Since the ribbing is stretchy, the tops are knit the same for both sizes, then the foot is a bit bigger for the large size. These should fit my son, aka Big Foot, just fine.
