MG Socks!

Finished Object: Mean Girl's Twisted Rib Socks
Pattern: My own, pretty basic with twisted rib cuff and toe
Yarn: Mama-E's C-eye-ber Fibers in Mean Girl (retails under Pink Suede)
Needle: 2.5 mm INOX Express
Time: Too long

Mean Girl Socks

I have scads of this yarn left, and I may make some wristwarmers with it. It's so soft and cuddly. I haven't taken the socks off my feet except to shower since I finished them Thursday night.

Fee says "Take those socks off, I want to lay on them." In the background is a painting by my high school art teacher. He is very talented. (I am going to buy one of those big bad manor house paintings for over my fireplace.) Everything I know about art I learned from him.

Oooh - those socks look wonderful - and hmmm yes, I won some Mama-E sock yarn from you - I MUST get it knitted up, rather than just sitting there looking pretty on the windowsill...

I adore those socks. Is that just K1,P1 ribbing on the toe? What a great way to snazz up stockinette socks!!!

It's twisted rib - k1 through the back loop, p1. That's it! :) I kept the side stitches for the decreases just regular knit stitches. (The k1 that comes before the decrease, plus the decrease, were done in regular knits.)

OMG, I love those socks!! I really, really, REALLY love those socks!! I want those socks. I covet your socks. Can I borrow those socks? That is the first pair of socks I've seen that have made me think, "Damn... I need to learn how to knit me some socks"

Very nice socks, with a great little twist on the basic Ss sock.

Oh Fee you are so lovely, Grady you're not too shabby yourself! Yes, I love your cats. OK, I come here for the cats. ;-)
