Woodland Basketweave Sock Cuffs
There's been a little bit of sock knitting going on while my subconscious is working on the fate of three sweaters sitting in time out.
This breaks my long standing rule of having no more than three projects on the needles at once, so I guess that rule has been downgraded to a suggestion.
There was no sun for these pictures, so the yarn color is looking more blue than it is in actuality. The blue color in the picture is really the green of a blue spruce. I hope to have a finished picture soon that shows the beautiful colorway, Woodland, as it really is.
Pattern: Basic sock on 60 stitches using a basketweave pattern on the cuff and instep.
Yarn: Stalwart Sock from Slackford Studio. 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon 4 Ply Fingering Weight Sock Yarn.
Needles: Options 2.50mm circulars.
Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch in stockinette.
