Red Socks Finished Just In Time For Cool Weather

Red wool socks in Broad Spiral Rib, displayed on the woodpile

These red socks have been in the works a long time. I finally finished them Wednesday night. In case anyone is considering it, I don't recommend this pattern, "Broad Spiral Rib" for socks. It's pretty, but it's rather tedious in fine yarn on small needles, and the "ribs" are lumpy and draw up the fabric quite tightly. I'm sure I'll wear them happily, but many people are more particular about sock texture than I. Ah well, it was good practice for working twist-stitch patterns. On to more interesting knitting.
