finished socks

This was my first pair of socks in… oh… 30 years or so.

These were worked on size 5 needles with a 2×2 traveling rib over the instep and up the ankle. The yarn is Moda Dea Sassy Stripes.

Sock # 2 is on the top. It’s pretty obvious that my technique improved after sock # 1. 😆 They may not be the best example of the craft, but they’re warm and cozy and are great for kicking around the house in.
