Retro Rib


At first I started knitting this wool (Koigu KPPM 415) as plain socks with size 1 needles and in fact finished one sock before I figured out I don't like the result. Too small and not stretchy. So, I started the retro rib socks from Interview Knits Favorite Socks. I will knit the leg part longer than I usually do and hope I will have enough yarn.

Koigu 415

Got some Koigu KPPM dye code 415 for socks. I still deciding on the pattern and will probably do a rib leg with a short row heel or maybe a pattern from the Interweave knits Favorite Sock book or ?
