Well, no ribbons for my socks this year. But I’m really glad I tried. I didn’t get to see them (we went away), but C & E checked on them for me. The feedback I got was that the ribbon winners were more colorful as well as textured, and done with very fine stitches. So, considering these were knit on 2.75mm rather than 2.00 I can’t complain. Like I said, I’m glad I tried.
I’ve been working on some gifts, so I’m hesitant to blog about them yet. However when I need something small to work on, I’ve been pulling out the Double Eyelet Rib socks from Wendy. She’s been busy creating a bunch of wonderful patterns available at the Loopy Ewe. Unfortunately, they are currently out of stock, but they’ll be getting more soon.
It’s amazing how much these socks stretch.
