Sock Number Two

The newly dyed yarn was too tempting!

I'm excited to see that it doesn't really seem to be pooling very badly.

This is a pattern loosely based on the Undulating Rib Socks from Favorite Socks -- but completely different. I wanted some purl stitches and some knit stitches, so (even though you can't see it in the above picture, unstretched) I did a 3x1 rib then a 1x3 rib to achieve the look. I think it will work when it is actually on a foot.

I love the color. I'm knitting a scarf with knit and purls, and nothing else in a certain order. I hope I'll not regret it, and want to poke my eyes out, before I'm done. Looking forward to your finished new socks.
