In the vein of "knit something nice for yourself," I share with you my favorite sock pattern that I've ever designed: the Rib Fantastic Socks.
These luscious beauties use a back and forth eyelet pattern that zigzags across the foot. It keeps the knitting interesting but isn't all that difficult, which is nice.
The socks as I made them were knit in a really awesome sock yarn that was 10 percent cashmere. It's not being produced any more, but I love a luxury sock yarn for this sock if you happen to have one you've been wondering what to do with. Especially if it's cold where you live right now, your feet will thank you!
