[ETA: Marie left a comment that the Waffle House Socks pattern is available on her website. Click here! It's a free pattern. Why don't you make it perfect by purchasing a hank of Marie's Soft Spun Plus yarn?]
Yesterday, I completely forgot to post the details of Marie's Socks:
Pattern: Waffle House Socks
Yarn: Brooklyn Handspun's, handdyed, superwash sock yarn. colorway: Daring.
Needles: US2s, circular.
What did I change? Nothing. This was a test knit. I knit the pattern as it was written.
What did I love? I used the magic loop method for a toe-up design. Both were firsts for me, and together they might have changed the way that I knit socks.
What would I do differently next time: Somewhere, deep in the recesses of my knitting brain, is the way to do a more flexible bind off for ribbing. This is what I would do differently. On the second sock I tried casting off with a US3 (instead of the US2 that I used to knit the sock). It worked pretty well.
