SKS Socks of Doom
Not sure how many of you are in YarnMonkey's Sock Wars, but I kept knitting the Rib of Doom thinking, "This looks really, really familiar."
As it turns out, it's one of the six-stitch patterns, Twin Rib, in SKS.
I made mine with Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK in Blue Boy. I finally got gauge with US7s. They are very loose, but I think they'll fit my victim. (They're not really two different sizes. I think it was the camera angle my husband was shooting from.)
It's been a fun game, and I think these are the fastest socks I've ever knit. I'm not dead yet (to quote Monty Python) but my doom should get to me this next week.
