New Sock

Wavy Rib Sock

Here’s what I’ve been doing with my knitting time. This sock has surprised me, it’s just something I doodled together by putting a 2×2 wavy rib pattern into one of the sock formulas from Charlene Schurch’s Sensational Knitted Socks. The yarn is STR Lightweight in the Backstabber colorway. Somehow the combination of the yarn and the simple stitch pattern is really working for me right now. I keep thinking I’m going to come up with another project, stash the sock in the diaper bag for on-the-go knitting, and move on to something big and interesting, but it hasn’t happened yet. I swatch and look through my ravelry favorites and play with different ideas and pull various things out of the stash to consider, and still, the sock remains my sole work-in-progress. I’m amazed how much having nice yarn in my favorite colors and a simple stitch pattern makes sock knitting so much more interesting, yet also soothing. I may yet turn out to be one of those crazy sock knitters. We shall see.
