FO: Garter Rib Socks

Pattern: 3x1 Garter Rib Socks (from Teach Yourself Visually: Sock Knitting)
Yarn: Cascade Heritage Silk Paints (yum!)
Needle: US 1 (2.25 mm)

What an easy yet satisfying pattern! I cast these puppies on the night of July 4th while the rest of the country watched fireworks. I knit while I watched movies, I knit on my lunches and breaks and I knit
on the long car ride to and from the Monteray Bay Aquarium today. As I watched hammerheads and yellowfin tuna swimming peacefully in their tank, I worked on and on in greens and blues. So many happy memories are knit into these socks!
And they fit wonderfully.

Alas, they are not destined to be mine.... Tomorrow morning I plan on gifting them to a beloved co-worker who deserves hand knit socks!!
Happy knitting, and have fun linking up with finished objects with Tamis Amis for FO Friday tomorrow! I might link this post in, but I work tomorrow so I might forget. I hope I don't because I love seeing everyone's completed projects!


  1. The socks are so pretty! What a lovely present they will be. I must get some of that gorgeous yarn in my stash.
    p.s. I managed to sneak some wooden dpn's into Warped Tour. I hid both the yarn and needles in the pockets of my raincoat. They are getting stricter every year, though!

  2. What lovely socks, and what a lucky co-worker you have to be gifted hand knitted socks :-)

  3. Great pattern, great color, and what a great gift!

  4. Love the colour!
    And your co-worker is very lucky :)
