Green Garter Ribs finished in record time!

Hi folks

I'm so happy because I finished my second-ever pair of socks, SKS Garter Ribs in Regia 6 ply Crazy Colors Jungle.

The first pair (Nordic Garter Ribs, shown below) took about 5-6 weeks to complete, but these were finished in about 10 days!

Unlike the Nordic socks, which were over-sized, these fit my teenage son perfectly. I knit these socks on 72 sts and 3mm needles, switching to 2.75mm needles for the heel flap.

Now I just need to decide what to make next ...

Happy socking, everyone!

Rachel :-)

Thank you! Over the weekend I whipped up two pairs of giant slipper socks out of Lion Brand Wool-Ease, but I'm now going back to SKS for my next project. I might try a toe-up sock next!
