Finally another finished pair of SKS socks. The Alternating 2x2 Ribs using Mountain Colors 4/8's Wool in the Sweet Lavender colorway.
These socks were worked toe-up using the Easy Toe cast-on on size 4 Brittany dpn's over 56 stitches for the body of the sock with a plain foot and patterning above the ankle. For the heel, I used the yarnover short-row heel by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts. The ribbing was worked using 3.0 mm Holz & Stein rosewood dpns'. The socks are a women's size 9.5 and used almost the entire skein. I had about a yard and half remaining.
The pattern is quick 4 stitch repeat that while simple isn't boring. Normally I don't knit socks in worsted weight and have never used the 4/8's. This was a teaching project that turned out to be a pleasure.
