i'm knitted them with a stitch pattern from _sensational knitted socks_ ... it's called bluebell rib (page 49). i was looking for something simple, elegant, and mindless. this simple 6 stitch repeat fulfilled all those desires.
i'm already on the heelflap. i'm keeping these on the short side (the leg is only 6") because they're a summer blend (wool/bamboo/nylon) and they have holes (lace).
i cast on another project yesterday as well ...
it's going to be a beer cozy. i'm using some leftover sock-ease yarn to knit my wee cozy. it's just for fun, but it would be nice to have it finished for when i go out sunday evening to hear a friend's band play. click on the picture and there's a link for the pdf file of the pattern.
