Beaded Rib

Wow, this goup is really jumpin' all of a sudden! I give to you the Beaded Rib Socks:

The Specs:
Pattern: Beaded Rib
Yarn: Who the heck knows? Possibly an alpaca/synthetic blend.
Needles: 5 US size 2 Empress wooden dpns
Size: CO 50 stitches for a slightly narrow size 7 1/2 (US) shoe
Started: 02 January 2007
Finished: 22 January 2007
Mods: Increased in purl spaces for sort-of knee socks (somewhat haphazardly but luckily hidden by the fuzzy nature of the socks). Did the short-row heel as proscribed and find I like it much better in a sock that actually fits my foot (refer to the Sixth Sense Socks for more details about that).

I just realized that I completed nearly-knee-socks in about three weeks. Yay me!

What, you want to see more? You'll have to come visit for that!

Pretty color. If it has any alpaca in it, they'll definitely be warm!
